... me to give this one a go and I'm glad I did
18 February 2017
It was the cover that intrigued me to give this one a go and I'm glad I did. It took me a few chapters to engage with the characters but once in, I couldn't put it down as we explore Cathy's life from awkward primary school to teenage angst and beyond.
I loved the 80s theme and it brought back lots of memories from my school days with Smash Hits and posters galore littering the walls as Cathy lusts after Andrew Ridgeley of Wham! in the more lighter moments of this coming of age novel where sex, religion and family life are explored.
A beautiful, sensitive, funny and well written novel.
