I am delighted to welcome you to my stop on the ‘Mumnesia’ Blog Tour the fantastic new book from Katie Dale. This hilariously, entertaining book is guaranteed to have you in stitches and reminiscing about the good old days of the 1980s. If you’re too young to remember the 1980s ask a parent or an older person, one of those people who was growing up when mobile phones where the size of a brick! Yes that’s actually true we don’t just make these crazy things up just to prove that you’ve got thing so much easier these days. It was the decade that fashion forgot, if you didn’t have plastic jewellery, leg warmers, and crimped hair – well you were never going to be in Bucks Fizz (again check with one of those grown up people).
Meet Lucy, whose Mum Sharon is determined to totally ruin her life. She won’t let her have her ears pierced, mobile phones are forbidden and under no circumstances is she going to let her go to the biggest deal in the whole history of the school the Black and White ball. OMG poor Lucy! She wishes that for just one day her Mum would remember what its like to actually be twelve, But you know the saying ‘be careful what you wish for’, when Lucy’s Mum wakes up with no memory of the last thirty years and thinks she’s twelve years old, things don’t always turn out as expected. Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions and plenty of magnificent comic moments.
It deals with a complex range of emotions and feelings that tweens experience and contrasts brilliantly life in the 1980s with today. The reality is although things seem very different a lot of the problems they face are still the same. Wonderfully funny and heart warming, this is a real joy of a read. Children will never look at their parents in quite the same way and may not be entirely trusting when they recount their versions of growing up. If you’re looking for something to make you laugh out loud and make you smile then this is the book for you. This is such a fun read that will totally brighten your day.
