How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran

This is just an incredible book from start to finish. I’ve seen the film already and loved it, so was keen to read the source material and it’s even better. It’s wonderful writing, witty and insightful, full of honesty and humour and thoughtfulness and longing, and alongside all that it’s telling a fantastic story. I couldn’t necessarily relate to Johanna/Dolly but it didn’t matter because it was so well told that I was there for every moment of the journey. Wonderful.
