I loved it so much, I wanted it to go on forever, Dolly Alderton is so gifted at making people care. A rare talent (Marian Keyes)
Almost shockingly intimate: the autobiographical writing is so rich, so affecting [. . .] Alderton is an old soul - not just because of her appreciation for Gene Kelly and Paul Simon but because she has learned life lessons while not yet out of her twenties that many of us post-menopausal matrons are still struggling with. A wonderful writer, who will surely inspire a generation the way that Caitlin Moran did before her. (Julie Burchill)
With courageous honesty, Alderton documents her life up to now, the highs and the lows - the sex, the drugs, the nightmare landlords, the heartaches and the humiliations. Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic. Only this writer, in this time, could have made such a mesmerising pattern from mess and colour. A brilliant debut. (Daily Telegraph)
Exquisite, hilarious, I loved every page. I was dazzled by her warmth and wisdom: Dolly has written an extraordinary book that all women will be able to relate to (Emma Jane Unsworth)
I loved its truth, its self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart spilling generosity. The power of female friendships is such great, uncharted territory, and just when you think it's going one (wonderful) way, it takes you somewhere infinitely more rugged, complicated and all the more affectingly tender. A joy. In short, it's a stone cold classic(Sophie Dahl)
It's so full of life and laughs - I gobbled up this book. Alderton has built something beautiful and true out of many fragments of daftness(Amy Liptrot)
Poignant, witty, comic, and self-deprecating. Dolly transcends the genre of millennial memoir [. . .] In a warm and conversational style she recounts the best and worst of her experiences in a laugh-out-loud, lightning quick journey through the years. This account will resonate with anyone who's ever been young and in love. (Daily Express)
This is the book we will thrust into our friends' hands, the book that will help heal a broken heart. Alderton's wise words can resonate with women of all ages. She feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one and her pages wrap around you like a warm hug(Evening Standard)
I can say with absolute certainty that you have to add it to your 2018 book list. You will quite literally laugh and cry as Dolly crashes her way through her teens and twenties. This is about growing up and all the mess that comes with it. I loved it.(The Pool)
A book that is both hilarious and moving, while all the time being beautifully written with insight and wit. Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation (Elizabeth Day)

Dolly has such a fluent and witty style of writing that you don't want to put the book down.
She describes the path that all teenage girls take when they suddenly become aware of the opposite sex and it makes you feel all nostalgic - though glad you don't have to go through that all again!
Though my love life has been much more mundane than Dolly's, I loved reading about her loves, crushes and booty calls and I loved reading about her friendships with her group of girl friends. It is a glowing endorsement for female friendships.
I kind of expected to feel a bit inadequate and regretful that my life had not been so full of edgy tales to tell as Dolly's, but actually I found the book completely heart-warming and it left me wondering how I could become part of her gang.
