After IrisTeaser: 

Dinner was hopeless. I mean properly hopeless, as in all the hopes we had that it was going to be a lovely evening were dashed almost immediately. 

After Iris by Natasha Farrant 



An unforgettable middle-grade debut that will steal your heart Blue Gadsby’s twin sister, Iris, died three years ago and her family has never been the same. Her histrionic older sister, Flora, changes her hair color daily; her younger siblings, Jasmine and Twig, are completely obsessed with their pet rats; and both of her parents spend weeks away from home–and each other. Enter Zoran the Bosnian male au pair and Joss the troublemaking boy next door, and life for the Gadsby family takes a turn for the even more chaotic. Blue poignantly captures her family’s trials and tribulations from fragmented to fully dysfunctional to ultimately reunited, in a sequence of film transcripts and diary entries that will make you cry, laugh, and give thanks for the gift of families.

With the charm of The Penderwicks and the poignancy of When You Reach Me, Natasha Farrant's After Iris is a story that will stay with readers long after the last page.

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.


  1. I love the Dead is the New Black series, although I just can't get into the new books without Daisy. I have The Summer I Became on my Kindle but haven't read it yet. Great list!

  3. Great teaser! And I love all your picks! Still need to read a couple of them, though. I'll probably be picking up Jessi Kirby's books soon after loving Golden.
