This review is from: Mostly Cloudy With Some Bright Spells (Kindle Edition)
If you have a long term illness then this book will be of interest to you. If you are fighting fit, and just want an engaging read that will make you laugh and cry in equal measure then I can't say enough about this gem. Juliette has what most young women at the time would have dreamed about - a job on a fun magazine, travelling the world, and meeting her favourite sportsmen and footballers. Juliette is no wanabee WAG, by the way. She is a richly intelligent, funny and self-depreciating character, and when you begin to read her story you can't help but laugh at some of the situations she gets herself into. However, after being struck down with serious illnesses Juliette doesn't shy away from what pain, in every sense, involves. Her dark and witty humour never leaves her, though, and it is this that makes this work special. When Juliette has periods when she feels slightly stronger you have to admire her will, as she lives life to the fullest effect. After reading this book I felt encouraged by Julia's honesty, and you can't help but be warmed by the relationship she has with her parents and brother. There is no ending to a book like this, so I hope Juliette will follow it up. I shall watch and wait.........
