12 year old Mary's beloved grandmother is near the end of her life. Letting go is hard - until Granny's long-dead mammy appears.

Her ghost has returned to help her dying daughter say goodbye to the ones she loves.

But first she needs to take them all on a road trip to the past.

A GREYHOUND OF A GIRL is a perfectly-pitched, funny and tender tale about four generations of an Irish family, and the special bonds between mothers and daughters.

It will entrance readers from 10 to adult.
