Daisy’s job is to be as unobtrusive as possible. But when her father suddenly leaves and her mother breaks down, Daisy’s old life disappears, and she is set free in the rift created between her parents. Susie Taylor’s sharp, quick-witted prose carries Daisy through a family cataclysm, relationships with boys, and her increasingly confusing feelings towards girls, especially Wanda. A refreshingly perceptive and honest debut, Even Weirder Than Before explores the nature of family, friendships, and sexual awakenings—and introduces one of Newfoundland’s most exciting new writers.

PRAISE FOR EVEN WEIRDER THAN BEFORE

“…witty, tender, heartbreaking, and luminous. Daisy Radcliffe is so honestly rendered, so absolutely present, so full of life, she is unforgettable. This is the truest depiction of what it feels like to grow up that I’ve read in a very long time.” – Lisa Moore

“It’s a queer coming-of-age novel, but its politics is a trick up its sleeve, the very best move saved until the novel’s final sentence… With a subtle hand, Taylor has written a political book that’s also at home in its bright and appealing pink cover—and it’s absolutely a joy to behold.” – Kerry Clare, Pickle Me This

“…a deeply personal, deeply funny book, which is garnering a lot of attention.” – Library Services Canada

“This book is refreshing… honest… and compulsively readable… one of the best books I’ve ever read about the complexities of growing up.” – Bookalong
