Book News : Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy by Lucy-Anne Holmes
'My love story may not be the sort you read about in books or see in films . . . Love stories have glorious highs and ghastly lows. But when it comes to my own life, I'd have to say, you can keep your fabulous highs and I'll happily steer clear of the terrible lows.'
After a rocky start in life, Jenny Taylor, 27, star receptionist at the local doctors surgery, has things all worked out thanks to 'The Smiling Fanny Manifesto' - a list of 10 daily things she must do to keep the blues at bay. But her life is turned upside down when she meets aspiring musician Joe King. And reliable boyfriend Matt proposes. And then her mum leaves her dad and moves into Jenny's flat determined to 'bond'.
I am a huge fan of Lucy. Loved her other books and it's been quite a while since I read them. I totally missed her brilliant writing and I have a very strong feeling I would love this one! The cover is simple and unlike her other covers. Simple palette of just three colours but creative, I like! Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy is expected to be out next January. Can you imagine the wait?
