The vignettes and recipes will make you nostalgic and very hungry.

Why you'll love it

Chng's calm, unpretentious prose leaves the reader free to follow the sentences without having to work out the meaning. The eye just slides down the page without a hitch, the words fuelling the imagination without slowing things down with unnecessary over-description. Her characters are matter-of-fact and impulsive and despite being young, are not foolish, and she doesn't patronise the reader. The story moves fast and keeps you interested.
