'My love story may not be the sort you read about in books or see in films . . . Love stories have glorious highs and ghastly lows. But when it comes to my own life, I'd have to say, you can keep your fabulous highs and I'll happily steer clear of the terrible lows.'
After a rocky start in life, Jenny Taylor, 27, star receptionist at the local doctors surgery, has things all worked out thanks to 'The Smiling Fanny Manifesto' - a list of 10 daily things she must do to keep the blues at bay. But her life is turned upside down when she meets aspiring musician Joe King. And reliable boyfriend Matt proposes. And then her mum leaves her dad and moves into Jenny's flat determined to 'bond'.
Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy will make you laugh and cry - and it will make you look at your own love story in a new way. Lucy-Anne Holmes is the bestselling author of 50 Ways to Find a Lover.
I truly enjoyed this book, Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy. I love how Lucy-Anne Holmes wrote about her characters. She made me fell in love with the characters. I really like Jenny Taylor and her best friend, Philippa and their smiling manifesto. And Joe King! It was hard not to like him. Reading this book feels like riding on a roller coaster of emotion. It had its hilarious and heartbreaking moments. There may be little things that I didn’t like much, like how Lucy-Anne Holmes ties it up with Jenny, her mother and Joe King, but I still enjoy this book. It was a page turner. I would definitely recommend this to chic lit lovers.
