It's the end of second year, and Susan and Daisy are moving in with their respective significant others, leaving Esther at a loose end. With nowhere to live she turns to the soft-hearted Ed Gemmell for help. The two of them spend a wild night on the town that ends in disaster.



Meanwhile, Daisy is embracing moving into a noisy factory space with the chaotic Ingrid. Enter Charlotte, the ten-year-old sister of Esther's old school friend, Sarah, described by Daisy as "bleach for the soul".



Giant Days Volume 9 sees a bit of a shakeup for the series, with the three main characters no longer living together. However, Esther, Daisy and Susan are still friends, and very much involved in each other's lives. It was nice to get to hear a bit about Ed's background in this volume. I also enjoyed the introduction of Charlotte, and I was delighted to learn that she is in another series by John Allison that I have yet to read- Bad Machinery, in which she and two friends solve mysteries in the town of Tackleford.

Giant Days continues to be funny, clever, and insightful. I will continue on to Volume 10 to find out how what happens next.
