“I like the author’s inevitable challenges with the self-constructed concepts of the ‘ideal’ and the shock of the actual reality. Very funny and self-deprecating in places.”
“The story documents the true accounts of the lives of Veronica, Daniel and Lilian and their escape from South Sudan when war erupts and they travel to a refugee camp in Bidi Bidi, Uganda. It’s both tragic and inspiring, and tough to read at times.”
“A life-or-death struggle with anorexia is told with devastating honesty in this extraordinary account of a girl at war with herself who takes us to some of the darkest places of the mind.”
“I took this on holiday and read it around the pool in a day, I was literally laughing out loud! Had some funny looks but hey ho…”
“I enjoyed this book even more than I expected. An entertaining read and Stanley Tucci’s humour and easy way with words come across. I also intend to try some of the recipes and the cocktails!”
“I’m a first-time mum due in June and am reading this in bed right now, it’s a saviour!”
“A funny and at times moving, insightful book at the bad sex, bad hair, bad body image, that many western young women experience.”
“In this book you’ll find lots of little pieces of me. It’s for anyone that may be like me, who just might be thinking “what’s next”? That feeling of being outside of your own body and needing to bring yourself back.”
“FIVE stars from me. Enjoyable, funny, heartbreaking reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.”
“Loved it! Made me nostalgic about my childhood watching him on children’s TV in the broom cupboard! Beautifully written, a great read and I would thoroughly recommend it!”
