Publisher's Summary

Maggie Cotton's life is a hot mess. 

In one day, she's dumped by her boyfriend, disinherited by her mum, and kicked off the three-year degree course she'd stretched to a decade. And that was before she received the letter saying she owed the government $70,000. 

But that's no reason to grow up, is it?  

With a decrepit 1960s caravan to call home, Maggie has to prove to her mother she can survive without a safety net, stop her loyal best friend Jen from marrying a scumbag, and convince her sexy workmate Rueben that she's not a walking disaster. For someone who's spent her life avoiding hard work, she sure can move mountains when she's got a little motivation - just don't ask her to move the caravan.

Critic Reviews

"A compulsive and hilarious read. In Maggie, Hartley has created one of those indelible characters of whom we must thoroughly disapprove and yet cannot help but love." (Karen Joy Fowler)

Great presentation by the narrator.

the narrator really captured Maggie's voice and i enjoy listening to her At first I really did not like the character maggie, her ideas, morals and actions where just so selfish I almost gave up early on. But i stuck withwithwas it which im glad as it was quite an enjoyable story of learning about one self and was quiet humorous. She did redeem herself in my books , well she was working in it.

Good narration, average story

I’m not usually a chick-lit fan and this book annoyed me for all the reasons chick-lit usually does. Maggie was an irritating character’s head to inhabit, but I did like her more by the end than I thought I was going to. I felt sorry for her cat too. The narration was very good and felt true to Maggie’s voice. The narrator even sang the song bits, which most narrators tend to just speak! My only gripe with the production was that sometimes there wasn’t enough pause to signal a new scene, so my brain scrambled to catch up a couple of times when it felt like we’d teleported or time travelled!
