Madison Flight refuses to be born for five days. She comes out eventually - kicking, screaming, and scarred for life by forceps - but it isn't long before her mother, Cynthia, realises the terrible truth: she has given birth to the world's first arguing baby. Cyntha's husband Mitchell soon takes off in terror, leaving her to raise their quarrelsome rugrat with only the help of the next door neighbour Shirley - a sadistic retired nurse who detests children. Madison's young life is full of proud milestones: at the age of one she breaks the world record for the number of times anyone has said the word 'no' during a two week Spanish package holiday - 4,477 times - and she gets better with practice. Lots of practice. This is the story of a girl who wanted to be right rather than happy. This is the story of the girl who couldn't stop arguing.

Witty and deeply compelling. If you've ever found yourself picking a fight because you know you're right, then this book is for you. Madison Flight is a fantastic and all-too-believable comic creation. I couldn't put it down. -- Joanna Rees Madison Flight was born arguing, so naturally, following some tempestuous teenage years, she grows up to be London's best divorce lawyer. The Spectator columnist's latest novel is both a glossy romp and a biting satire on sexism. Good enough to warrant booking a holiday - with a sun lounger to read it on Vogue A sharp comedy of manners The Sunday Mirror Colourful, outrageous, satirical and hilarious. Daily Mail If you're looking for some light relief in literary form, Melissa Kite's debut novel is the perfect answer. Bursting with life from the very first page, Kite's madcap story and wry, witty narration is bags of fun and a real breath of fresh air ... Melissa Kite is a natural wordsmith and this is an impressive, original debut. We Love This Book The key to any good novel is to perfect your main character into someone the reader feels they have got to know. And Melissa Kite hits the nail on the head on that front ... Highly entertaining, witty and, at times, [a] laugh-out-loud read. Press Association
