How to Be a Woman cover art

Didn't finish this - too awful to continue!

I had eagerly awaiting this release and had heard rave reviews about it and about Caitlin. She's so edgy, so fresh, so daring. Well it turns out that actually she's just so crude and vulgar and gratuitous and smug. Awful vocal delivery and over the top, gratuitous detail about her most intimate bodily experiences. I did not find her boundary pushing or social norm-testing, or intelligent or even funny. Avoid.

This is my first audio book purchase and I spent a long time listening to samples of various books ...SO pleased I chose this one. It is such a moving, poignant, beautiful story, written so delicately and so artfully,and narrated perfectly.

The audio version of "page turner".I couldn't stop listening to this, and finished it within a weekend. I'm not sure that teenagers would necessarily use all the language that the two teen characters used, but that is an aside. The story is clever, honest, original and entertaining. Really likable characters....when the book ended I felt sorry to be leaving them behind.
