Audible Editor Reviews

"...a cult hit." (Grazia)
"LJ's honesty and voice are unique in a crowded market." (Stylist)
"If you've ever felt a little lost, I hope this book finds its way to you." (Daisy Buchanan)
"Everyone is writing about sex. Some are even doing it. Haven't we all been waiting for someone to look at what happens when you opt out, and to do it with not only humour...but also true empowerment? Call off the search. At last, here she is." (The Guyliner)

Publisher's Summary

A survive-and-thrive memoir from blogger and social media influencer Laura Jane Williams.

When the man Laura Jane Williams thought she'd wed dumped her and married her friend, she was devastated. Empty. Drinking too much, sleeping around, and moving from place to place in a refusal to put down roots, she tried to fill the void - the gaping hole - that heartbreak had left behind. She wanted control. To grab life by the balls. To live boldly. But she rapidly learned it wasn't that simple.

Resolving that life couldn't go on as it was - that the backlog of men and sadness that haunted her would not define her - Laura declared a yearlong vow of celibacy, ultimately finding herself in a Riviera convent as she slowly put the pieces of herself back together.

An honest exploration of a young woman's soul and a road trip through Italy, America, Paris and...Derby, Becoming is a book that makes you laugh and makes you cry, but most of all? It makes you realise that even when the going gets tough, no one is really f--king up like they think they are.
