AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Peregrine is bedded down in the wash-house with a broken leg so his mate rigs up microphones through the house. But he’s not prepared for the sorts of things he hears about his family.

'It’s his sisters talking about you know what, his young brother mumbling away, and the local cop chatting up his mother. But the worst thing is when they decide he needs a bath. This is a novel for teenagers, or anyone who lives with teenagers, that will make you laugh out loud.'
