When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out.

I LOVED this book.

I really can’t get away with how much I can relate to Dolly’s life. I am so thankful for her writing. I, also 29, can completely identify with the thoughts and emotions expressed in this book, in particular the chapters which
involve issues related to overwhelming anxiety, low self esteem that leads to consistent alcohol misuse something I can directly relate to my own experiences of which came to a head and seen me attend my first AA meeting in my 25th year. At a time in my life now where I understand my past unhealthy relationship with alcohol wasn’t related to addiction but to my mental health and my lack of self love or belief...it is so refreshing to hear a woman the same age go through such similar feelings and come out the other side.

I laughed out loud and cheered at Dolly’s sharp baby shower/wedding/every occasion ever that single women are alienated from. THANK YOU!

I listened to this on audiobook over the course of about 5 days, it kept me company on the commute and even caused me to miss my stop one day from being so engrossed in the story.

Spectacular

Thank you for letting us into your life Dolly
