Product description


Truly a f***ing good novelEvening Standard

It is so good! It is so honest about being a woman and all the things that are expected of us ... I enjoyed it very much. -- Marian Keyes

Bourne incinerates the lies we're all capable of telling ourselves in this raw and very funny book; it'll resonate with anyone trying to convince themselves that sticking it out is better than being alone. Emerald Street

The most perceptive book I have ever read about the female interior -- Dolly Alderton, The High Low Podcast

Injected with such reality it can't help but be hilariousTimes

Relatable for any woman navigating emotional time bombs Red

There's a duality in reading things that are super relatable - it feels great to be heard, but also a little exposing. There's a little bit of that in Holly Bourne's latest novel, but nothing will stop you getting to the end...This novel is funny, touching and searingly honestGrazia

Funny, real and incredibly relatableCulturefly

It speaks so many truths about being a woman in your thirties; friendships, love and what a fickle beast social media can be. -- Clemmie Hooper

Honest and unflinchingStylist

Hilarious and painfully trueGrazia

Identifiable, heart-breaking and wickedly funny. I'd say this is one of my favourite books of the year -- Giovanna Fletcher

I haven't been this obsessed with a book in years. It's painfully funny, real, but also heartbreaking. Get this book now or be the loser who can't join in when everyone else is talking about it. -- Lucy Vine, bestselling author of Hot Mess

'A smart, witty and perceptive novel; Bourne is razor-sharp on friendship, self-image and self-deception' -- Lucy Diamond, bestselling author of The House of New Beginnings

Sure to resonate with anyone navigating the emotional minefield of their thirtiesRed Online

Sublime, perfectly observed -- Laura Jane Williams, Ice Cream for Breakfast

'This novel is sharply observant about the issues in young women's lives today - feminism, relationships, mental health and motherhood - and it is very, very funny. ― Bookseller

Authentic, funny and utterly relatable; this book gave me all of the feelings. This generation's Bridget Jones! -- Carmel Harrington, author of The Woman at 72 Derry Lane

Perfectly addresses the storm of emotions you go through as a young woman, growing up in a world where you need to have the best boyfriend, best career and best group of friends (and it's all got to be displayed beautifully across your social media profiles.) ― BBC News Online

'This is a deeply feminist novel that questions whether the competitive nature of social media is breeding a lifestyle conformism among women that can only limit their freedom and their happiness. It is also, almost line by line, wincingly funny' ― Metro

Will strike a chord with anyone who worries about their relationship with social media, feels like they're being left behind by their friends or is wrangling with the pressures of being in, or out, of a partnership in their 30s. Buy it for your best mate whose boyfriend isn't good enough for her, your recently dumped sister or just for yourself if you're feeling a little 'what the hell?' about your fourth decade; you'll all take something from it ― Stylist

Tori is surely the Bridget Jones of our timesStylist

Brutally honest but charmingly funnyStylist

Well-written, genuinely funny and movingly honest. It could be a life-changing read for many.Sheerluxe

Holly Bourne nails the pressures that young women face and captures that feeling of teetering on the edge of 30 and still not knowing what you want from life. It's funny and sad in equal measures' ― The Express, S Magazine

A very funny novel that lives up to its hypeThe Sunday Telegraph

Mordantly funny, flinchingly well-observed... A smart, zeitgeisty, and caustically funny read, it has characters you root for. More than that, however, Bourne holds a mirror up to contemporary aspiration, deftly probing the dissonant dualism between the shinier selves projected online and people's offline reality. ― Sunday Times

Cheerfully plunders all that can be plundered from a young woman's quest for life in the 'fast line' -- Helen Lederer, Metro

Funny, astute, bitingly honest, it's a genuine triumphBookseller

Brutally honest, appallingly funny and very moving - so accurate on the female interior, and the loneliness life in the public gaze. I want to read everything Holly Bourne has written now -- Rosie Walsh, author of The Man Who Didn't Call

Funny, sad, honest, insightful, up-to-the-minute. Bourne's pacy narrative kept me guessing (and hoping)to the last page. -- Roisin Meaney, author of The Reunion
