Publisher's Summary

An achingly funny story from the author of the best-selling You Had Me at Hello.

When Edie is caught in a compromising position at her colleagues' wedding, all the blame falls on her - turns out that personal popularity in the office is not that different from your school days. Shamed online and ostracised by everyone she knows, Edie's forced to take an extended sabbatical - ghostwriting an autobiography for hot new acting talent, Elliot Owen. Easy, right?

Wrong. Banished back to her hometown of Nottingham, Edie is not only dealing with a man who probably hasn't heard the word no in a decade but also suffering an excruciating regression to her teenage years as she moves back in with her widowed father and judgy, layabout sister.

When the world is asking who you are, it's hard not to question yourself. Who's that girl? Edie is ready to find out.

Mhairi delivers again

I have become a fast fan of Mhairi McFarlane, she has a beautiful way of explaining a feeling. I personally think the term ‘input overload’ will stick with me every time I look at my phone.
I’ll be looking for more of her work.
The narrator, Cassie, was great also and a perfect fit for this book.

Humorous, Witty, A Great Read

This book will make you laugh out loud. Great narration, heart warming story with a twist at the end that will take you right up to the final line.

Who' that Girl

Any additional comments?

This was such an enjoyable book! I loved the characters.
I found parts of it a little predictable but don't let that put you off! It was great fun

Brilliant

Literally laugh-out-loud funny and even made me cry. Sure, the storyline is a bit over-the-top maybe, and the narrator had different takes on punctuation than I would have reading it myself, but honestly, i loved it and definitely recommend it.

Great story

I love Mhairi books. This story was lovely. Narration was good although I found it halted at times.
I kind of wanted a different ending but that’s just me :)
If you are already a fan you will like this.

Ending disappointing

Quite a long story. That waffled on a bit in the middle. Then didn't finish...

The best book I have EVER read

I loved loved loved this book!!

It was hilarious. But also so on the mark with every emotion that she spoke of.

I cannot recommend enough. I basically stopped speaking to everyone for two days as I was so obsessed with it.

Amazing book and such a great performance too. Great accents!

Dragged and rubbish ending

This had loads of potential but her previous relationship drama and choices were grating, and the ending was rubbish. It was a bit stretched out and dragged too. Shame because there’s a lot that could have been done with this story. The narrator has been great with other books, and although she was mostly good, it was really stilted and unnatural for a lot of the dialogue.

McFarlane's writing gets better and better. And so do the narrators. Very much enjoyed this book.

Very Enjoyable

Funny, sweet story. Made me laugh and cry (always the sign of a good story) Held my attention from beginning to end. Found the two main characters a bit frustrating at times as in 'for heavens sake get to the point' however having said that I fell a bit in love with Elliot.

Excellent, Funny with substance

This book had me rooting for the lead character Edie, from the start. I thought it was going to take a while to kick off then bam a wedding situation that Edie comes off as the taboo figure then she finds out who her friends are. She is a copywriter and to add distance from the wedding fiasco she leaves London and heads up to her home town up north. Her boss hands her a lifeline of a job doing the autobiography of a up and coming actor in her home town. From then on her life changes some good, some bad moments but ultimately she grows as a person and bonds more with her family because her mother took her own life when Edie and her sister Meg were very young and when Edie and her Father and sister finally address the elephant in the room they all find out eventually that they are stronger together. Really enjoyable and I will check out more from this author.

Nice Story, Disappointing Ending!!

I really enjoyed this story, I just hope that Mhairi McFarlane will write a sequel so we can continue with Edie and Elliott's story.

Great story

I enjoyed this book and the storyline as well as the performance of the reader. Beginning was a bit tedious and I could do without the swearing but a lovely sweet romantic story with almost a great ending.
