Everyone hates the perfect family.
So you'll love the Battles.
Meet Mo Battle, about to turn 50 and mum to two hormonal teenagers. There's 17-year-old daughter Dora who blames Mo for, like, EVERYTHING and Peter who believes he's quite simply as marvellous as his hero Oscar Wilde. Somewhere, keeping quiet, is Dad, who's just, well . . . Dad.
However, Mo is having a crisis. She's about to do something unusually wild and selfish, which will leave the entire family teetering on the edge of a precipice. Will the family fall? Or will they, when it really matters, be there for each other?

As a fan of Dawn French I wanted to see if her writing style could be as funny as the characters she portrays on TV & this book didn't disappoint!
A easy and effortless read about a family of four: Mum Mo who is having a mid life crisis & considering having an affair with a work colleague that her son Peter has also developed a major crush on & daughter Dora who seems to go from crisis to crisis & absolutely hates her mother. Then there's dad who stays pretty quiet in the background....until the end!
The characters have a brilliant and funny take on modern family life, it did take a bit to get into the story but one I was in I found A Tiny Bit Marvellous to be 'a huge amount of marvellous!!! - Wade (QBD)
