Product description


Rude, big-hearted, wise-cracking novel -- Christina Patterson ― The Sunday Times

Brilliantly observed, thrillingly rude and laugh-out-loud funny -- Helen Fielding

An entertaining read, with Moran in fine voice – hilarious, wild, imaginative and highly valuable…Moran is in danger of becoming to female masturbation what Keats was to Nightingales… -- Barbara Ellen ― The Observer

A Portnoy's Complaint for girls… when I see this book described as "laugh-out-loud funny" I feel affronted; it could make you laugh out loud with one hand tied behind its back, while wanking itself off to fantasies of Satan. Laughing out loud is just the start -- Zoe Williams ― The Guardian

spirited coming of age novel romps from strength to strength…I’m a Moran fan -- Lionel Shriver ― The Times

Book Description

The Sunday Times Number One coming-of-age bestseller from the author of How To Be a Woman - soon to be a major motion picture.
