#LittleGirlWho by @keano81

This is the story of a brave young girl, Elodie-Rose, who one day decides to change the world and keep all her fucks in her basket. Wait a minute. You’re confused. What are fucks, you ask? It’s quite simple, really. Fucks are her self-esteem; all the happy, sad and wonderful thoughts that sit in her basket. That sits in every girl’s basket! And every girl must give these fucks away every time someone asks. One day Elodie-Rose decides to break rank and find out what happens if those fucks stay where they are.


[Some days, the world was meant to change]

I thought this was an amazing book. I didn’t know what to think at first, can a book be classed as appropriate children’s fiction when it has the word fuck and fucks scattered throughout? By concerns soon melted away. First off, this is a gorgeous, brightly illustrated and colourful book. Every page was pleasure to read. I read a digital copy off my PC screen as the book just didn’t look right on my kindle. This would be even better in hardback. I cannot compliment the gorgeous artwork enough. The author uses poetry throughout, mostly rhyming couplets to tell Elodie-Rose’s story. This is a book about friendship and self-esteem and feminism and love. This is a brilliant book.  


I live in Glasgow in the UK with my partner. I work in the Financial Services. I like reading especially Joyce Carol Oates and Stephen King. I write fiction and poetry. I enjoy watching TV (Grimm, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Lip Service, The L Word etc). I like to play video games and am a fan of survival horror especially the Silent Hill franchise. I like to watch movies especially horror and anything where someone dies.
