Red InkBook - 2016
"When her mother is knocked down and killed by a London bus, fifteen-year-old Melon Fouraki is left with no family worth mentioning. Her mother, Maria, never did introduce Melon to a "living, breathing" father. The indomitable Auntie Aphrodite, meanwhile, is hundreds of miles away on a farm in Crete and is unlikely to be jumping on a plane and coming to London anytime soon. But at least Melon has The Story: the Fourakis family fairy tale. A story is something" -- Book jacket.
