About the Book

It's hard being the normal one in such a crazy family.

Bluebell's life is chaotic: Mum and Dad are always away, the new babysitter has no idea what he's doing, and the whole family is trying to get used to life without Iris.

There are tears and tantrums. Pregnant pets and broken windows. Boys next door and friends turned enemies. But there is also laughter and most importantly, there is love - and that's what being a family is all about.

She grew up in London where she still lives with her husband and their two daughters. She is the author of the Carnegie-longlisted and Branford Boase-shortlisted YA historical novel The Things We Did For Love, as well as two successful adult novels.

“I loved After Iris. It's both poignant and funny - a rare combination. Natasha does chaos so well! And dialogue. And kindness. The latter is often lacking in books for young people and was a positive pleasure to soak up.”
- Jenny Downham
