Oh this book was fantastic. Read it in one day because I just could not put it down. It would make an amazing film. I keep thinking about it now and want to urge everyone to read it. Very impressive debut novel..clever and engaging and powerful

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely loved this book, 18 May 2015
I absolutely loved this book. It is classic chick lit and the perfect holiday read. A story I can certainly relate too with a boy band crush of my own that I still haven't *quite* grown out of. A book about friendship, music, love, memories and second chances. Oh and dreams coming true! A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really positive and important!, 19 Sept. 2014
This book is really positive; it is filled with strategies for raising children’s self esteem and nurturing them.

I like how simple, doable yet effective these strategies are.

Tanith talks about the importance of making a home a sanctuary where a child can relax, where families eat together, where they can talk over their day. She discusses how research has proved that time away from screens, having a pet and exercising outside can help children feel better about themselves as well as be healthier.

She presents simple solutions to big problems that will benefit us all.It has challenged my parenting which had slipped into ‘pushy mum’ habit and it has pulled me back. But it hasn’t left me floundering, I now have strategies to cope. I think we may all be a bit more chilled out and a lot happier in both the present and the long term as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Convincing and funny!, 14 Aug. 2014
Lucy is an excellent writer, her amazing blogs Lulastic and Wonderthrift attest to that. She is funny, direct, speaks in an easy language we can all relate too and she is clear. This ebook is an easy, informative read that will also make you giggle.

Happy Hair covers the science of “No Poo” and has over thirty natural, gentle alternatives to commercial hair care products..many of them you will already have in you cupboards

Not using shampoo has many obvious benefits for thrifty types but it is also better for the environment and our hair (and according to some reports for eczema too!) . So its a win win win situation.

Lucy’s book is a great read and it is inspiring and convincing. I have met Lucy and she does indeed have fab hair.

It encourages you to get involved and to make it easy for your child to access play independently too. It is a wise,fun and inspiring book and an easy, pleasant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked this book. It was very clear and gave lots of examples of how you could negotiate prices on practically everything. It left me feeling confident and prepared to get the best deal I could.
Fantastic, exactly what I wanted to learn from it. Marc writes in an engaging, entertaining way and this is a pleasure to read, not dry like many finance books.

A very sweet and helpful book to explain to children why parents separate. Ultimately positive whilst still acknowledging the hurt feelings involved.
