Read full description of the books:
I LOVE this book. Really. I can't get over how much I enjoyed it. It is fab. It not your basic, run-of-the-mill tween/teen read. It's a little bit quirky, very witty and extremely entertaining. (I love its IRISHNESS too!)
Improper Order is the sequel to Prim Improper, the debut novel of Galway author, Deirdre Sullivan. I must add at this point that Deirdre Sullivan is not just a talented author, but she is also gifted at writing funny, awesome replies to fan mail. I would recommend reading Prim Improper before you read Improper Order, partly because you should be properly introduced to the characters and Prim's situation, but mostly because it's a very funny, wittily written book.
You might want to skip this paragraph because, here's your warning, SPOLER ALERT! Primrose Leary is now fourteen and a half, and she is in second year with her friends Joel (who moved to Prim's school after homophobic bullying at his old school), Ciara (who used to eat her own hair, has found a friend in her granny, Lily, and is a budding milliner) and Ella (who is autistic, excellent with animals, and is getting lots of attention from a certain ferret owner...). She is living with her dad Fintan (who is going through that never-ending middle-aged phase where is likes to use phrases like "I'm chillin' like a villain") after her mum was run over by a drunk driver. The book is written in diary format, and because Prim wants to be a cruciverbalist (look it up!), each chapter title is a crossword clue. The book centres on Prim's (very funny) friendships, crushes and interactions with other people in her world, but also on her bereavement because of her mother's death, which is leading her to self-harm. Add in her anger at the early release of the man who killed her mother from prison, and you have one mixed up Prim. There are several "uh oh" moments (like when it is revealed that one of Prim's crushes is the son of her mum's killer) and also some awkward, funny teenage situations (like when Primrose and now openly gay Joel are both crushing on the same boy).
It all adds up to one witty, loveable novel that is full of laugh-out-loud moments, but also startles the reader with little snippets of raw, angry sadness. You will laugh, and probably cry too. Deirdre Sullivan really gets inside the head of Primrose, a precocious, witty, sad, angry, mixed-up teenager who is looking for certainty and security; of life, of family, of friendship and of love. I recommend this book to teenagers aged 12-15. (Okay, I auppose the vast majority of readers of the books about Primrose will be girls, but I don't believe in ruling out the lads.) I loved this book. I think you will too.
