I loved every second of this book. Dolly is a brilliant writer, and brought me right back to the days of logging on and off MSN hoping the guy I liked would see me. I laughed, cried, and laughed again.

Over the previous decade, Bella had been so paralysed by her fears that exercise was the very last thing on her mind. So that first run didn’t last very long. But to her surprise, she was back out there the next day. And the day after that. She began to set herself achievable goals - to run 5k in under 30 minutes, to walk to work every day for a week, to attempt 10 push-ups in a row. Before she knew it, her mood was lifting for the first time in years, and she had swapped hiding in her house for fresh air, unknown roads and running tracks.

But this is an inspiring and relatable story. I hate running, but this book helped me to realise I could go for a 'jog' and not put any pressure on it. Doesn't need to be about miles, or goals. I listened to the whole book in one day, and then went for a jog.
