Firstly a big thank you to lina at black and whire publishing for my copy. I have not read any of this authors books but after reading this I would love to!
I could relate a lot to Courtney being a single mum and questioning who she is etc.
Raising a teenage daughter is tough whatever the situation. However having to share her with a cool dad and step mum is the final straw.
This is a funny book with great charactars set in a idealsick location.
Courtney starts to live for herself and get that zest for life again .
Could she really be happy?
Or will her commitments pull her back.
Really enjoyed this book and was cheering her on.
