‘A vinaigrette of despair poured over a salad of joy.’
Lola is sixteen years old, sharp-witted and has her whole life ahead of her – until she’s diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour. Now her brilliant mind is rapidly turning into useless mush.
So she’s promised herself two things before she dies:
1. She’s going to get All The Sex and
2. She’ll definitively discover the Meaning of Life.
