This she does for 6 years when she meets Matt who proposes marriage, eventually. Jenny sees this as, 'not a heady love, it's a sensible love and it feels safe'. Fine, until she meets rock musician Joe King and the sexual chemistry kicks in. This ties in with the arrival of Pam, Jenny's 54 year old mother, who finds her husband has been having an affair. Pam regresses to a wild life-style of men, drink and hangovers. The mother-daughter bond becomes stronger as her relationship with Matt flounders.
Jenny is a loveable character and appealing lady surrounded by a bunch of zany friends in a bizarre world. Although the humour runs off the author's pen like water from a tap, there are moments of sadness that crop up. The moral is that if you are a girl standing facing a boy, don't tell him you love him. Lucy-Anne Holmes has written a witty, fun-packed book aimed straight at the reader with a message and honesty. An easy, wonderful and engaging novel that may lead you to look more closely at relationships.
Jenny Taylor finally has things worked out in her life, but after meeting musician Joe King her life is turned upside down, and then on top of that boyfriend Matt proposes. And then her mum unexpectedly turns up too and Jenny’s life is thrown up in the air…
I really enjoyed this – I opened the first page and I was soon swept up in Jenny and her world, I didn’t want this book to end!
Lucy-Anne Holmes writes with such ease, the words flow beautifully and every chapter moves seamlessly from one to the next. Her humour is just brilliant and she had me giggling and smiling. There are also more serious moments that made my heart ache, and I had a few tears too. If I’m honest it just made me love the story that much more, wow.
The characters were wonderfully written – I immediately loved Jenny, her personality shone from the pages and I was really rooting for her throughout. The great thing about Jenny is that she is SO relatable, I really cared about what happened to her and I’m sure many readers like myself will instantly connect with her.
I LOVED the men in this, especially Joe King! He is handsome, charming, funny and oh how I wished he were real!
Just A Girl Standing In Front Of A Boy is romantic and witty, with a few moments that will really touch your heart. This is a truly stunning story.
We have the very wonderful Jenny Taylor (aka Fanny; this is explained early on in the book) and her brilliant, devoted friend, Philippa. Her flat mate is the terrific Ali and then along comes her superb mum, Pam who I just loved. Jenny is in a relationship with workaholic Matt, who pays her little or no attention as he is always answering a call on his blackberry or replying to emails.
This book had me laughing out loud and crying in equal measures. For the last quarter of the book I literally couldn't put it down and it was just lovely.
I then couldn't get to sleep for going over it in my mind, but I just had to finish it.
An absolute treat of a book.
