What a fantastic idea!
on 24 September 2013
I saw this book advertised via a blog written by Sarra Manning (one of my favourite authors) so looked it up and was impressed at the fact so many "celebs" had submitted a piece. At the reasonable price of just over £3 for the ebook I decided to support the effort. Let's be honest here, why wouldn't you?
I found some of the submissions funny, nostalgic, and at times thought provoking. After reading about half, I woke up in the morning thinking about my own experience as a girl (which I had chosen to forget) and it made me think about how to support my own daughter as she goes through puberty - I dread to think!
I finished the rest the next day and thoroughly enjoyed the stories by Will Hill, Sarra Manning (not a surprise here!), and Patrick Ness.
I did think (if I am honest) that some of the entries were on the gratuitous side - but hey, at least the celebs gave up a moment of their time!
I actually publish short story anthologies to raise money for charities, and think this is a great way to raise money for good causes. Personally, I would have liked the stories to have titles at the beginning, not just the author name, and the entries split into fiction & nonfiction... But that is my personal preference.
Saying that, there really is something for everyone in here... Both men & women will find something to enjoy. I certainly had never considered the male angle to "boobies" - I am finally enlightened...
Download & support - I highly recommend it :)
