LoveReading View on How to Get the Family You Want by Peony Pinker

Peony Pinker feels she has a disaster for a family and because they're always busy she never gets to get what she wants.  But how to change that or will she have to change and learn to live with the family she has?  Find out in this fun and emotional rollercoaster but ultimately an uplifting read on what it's like to grow up.


How to Get the Family You Want by Peony Pinker Synopsis

Peony Pinker is fed up with her family. Her mum's working long hours setting up her gardening business and her dad isn't pulling his weight around the house, so they're arguing all the time. Her big sister, Primrose, is stressed about her exams and taking it out on everyone else including her lovely boyfriend Matt. Peony's Gran tells her you can choose your friends but not your family; as you can't have the family you want, you have to learn to want the family you've got. 'Not possible!' thinks Peony. But Gran is sure she'll think of something. As most of Gran's ideas go horribly wrong, Peony knows there will be even more trouble ahead...
