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.

This was such an enjoyable book! I loved the characters.

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.

Enjoyable but ends flat

I enjoyed listening to this book, the background with the family was told well and I could relate. Quite a few ha ha moments. While I was hoping the two main characters would get together there was something lacking, not many lead up moments that had you gripped. The ending was also a let down. Some people like open endings but I feel so incomplete especially after committing so many hours to the story... The narration was mostly good except that there was no voice difference between the two main characters so couldn’t tell who was who in some parts.

another great story

I loved it although did find this character a little frustrating at times. What I really wish is that Mhairi did epilogues or a sequel...

Great book

Another great book by this author. Spoiler: I'm not sure I totally liked the ending. certainly was an anticlimax for me. I really hope the author is writing a sequel as this story seemed unfinished.

Page turner but not my fave by the author

Quite enjoyed this book overall, particularly in certain sections. I liked that it was about a woman becoming more self confident and reliant, particularly loving when she stood up for herself in the end. There were some bits, like when the bullying was bad or when Edie was so awkward, which I found kind of hard to listen to/irritating but perhaps because they are a little too close to home. The ending was disappointing in some regards- I’m glad she did what was best for her but it was a bit of a cliffhanger! (With no sequel lol).

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.

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.

Fantastic

I loved Edie and wanted her to be happy and see herself as the good person she is. I wanted Jack to get his comeupance and the good people to come out on top. Highly recommended.

I love These books

I have binged most of Mhairis books I’m just 1 week. I can’t get enough. They’re great and make your heart soar with happiness for the characters. It has perfect plot and the characters aren’t annoying or do stupid things for a plot twist which I found to be quite satisfying. I would recommend all of these books!

I loved the story, pity about the ending.

I loved the story, I’ve listened to a lot of Mhairi McFarlane’s books and I particularly like this one. The ending kinda ruined it...
