'Funny and furious and strangely uplifting. Grace is a bitter and beguiling anti-hero with a keen eye for social analysis - even in her most grisly deeds, you never stop rooting for her' PANDORA SYKES 'Addictive... Grace Bernard is one of the most intriguing and bewitching protagonists I've read in years' EMMA GANNON 'A funny, compulsive read about family dysfuction and the media's obsession with murder' SUNDAY TIMES STYLE 'How do I find the words to describe this amazing debut novel from Bella Mackie? What we have here is a hilariously clever and superior book that dissects every single facet of the contemporary society we live in whilst also examining the power of the super rich and famous ... In my opinion, the author has redefined satire. If you're picking this up expecting a Killing Eve dupe then you'll be disappointed because How To Kill Your Family is 100x smarter and deeper than that, and that's a fact' THE CANDID BOOK CLUB
