The best-ever children's novel from the brilliant Roddy Doyle is a funny, sad story about four generations of a family. 12 year old Mary O'Hara's beloved, joke-cracking grandmother is near the end of her life.

Letting go is hard - until a mysterious young woman appears at Mary's door.

She is the ghost of Granny's long-dead mammy and her mission is to help her dying daughter say goodbye to the ones she loves.

But first she needs someone to drive them all to the old family farm for a visit to the past.

A GREYHOUND OF A GIRL is a perfectly-pitched, sharp and tender tale of family history, cracking characters, and bonds between mothers and daughters that will entrance readers from 10 to adult.
