You really feel like you’re in the head of the protagonist and she’s often funny and witty.
However, the overall book was definitely inferior by far to ‘A Girl Like You’, which, unlike this one, I loved.
review 2: I really enjoyed reading A Girl Like You so I thought I would give this book a try. I was slightly disappointed because I thought I would love it like I did with her other book but I didn't fall in love with her main character, Sass.
At some points, I was slightly annoyed which can happen when I read chick-lit books.
However this book didn’t capture me very much, the plot was a bit flat… I felt that the Love Story, which for me should be the focal point in a chick-lit novel, was left with a meagre 20% of the book at most.
