Summary

It's been 10 days, two hours and 43 minutes since Tansy got dumped. Two heartbreaking weeks since Renzo, who made her weak at the knees and dizzy with excitement, found out Tansy’s secret - and ended it on the spot. 

Since then, she’s spent every evening scrolling through their old photos, drunk texted him 26 times (he stopped reading after five), and lost count of how many packets of Kleenex she’s cried her way through. But while she’s busy pretending, Tansy’s plan is thrown a major curveball. She has to learn the hard way that it’s not her, it’s him - and that sometimes, a breakup can end up being the making of you.

Some of my fave tropes, none of the toxic ones

A great, almost light hearted read. The plot revolves around a romance but heavily features girls supporting girls. There is some mention of home life difficulties, sex work, eating disorders, and more. I really enjoyed this story and left feeling pretty good. The performance was also good overall, though difficulty performing the accent, I think. it didn't detract from the quality of my entertainment, however.

Easy listen

This was an easy listen and a good story but frustrating too. The main character didn’t respect herself and allowed her to be treated badly and feel like she deserved it which annoyed me. But overall it’s a good story just bare with it.

Easy Fun Listen!

I really enjoyed this book it was a nice easy simple listen to the daily life of a young woman who Struggles through life, remembering insecurities from school and insecurities within a present daily life. In the background she still struggles with an eating disorder but refuses to do anything about it, not realising that the disorder, insecurities and her self-doubt are all combined And preventing her from freely moving through life… Can’t say anymore you need to read ...Not too intense just easy!

More than I expected

Touched on so many interesting subjects, yes it may have been a bit predictable but the journey there was really worth it.

Great Story. Terrible Narration.

An undemanding, slightly predictable but engaging storyline, tackling some interesting issues. Unfortunately the narration of this book is absolutely dreadful - stilted delivery and mispronunciation of so many words. I persevered but wouldn't listen to other books narrated by Jessica Preddy.

Enjoyabke

Enjoyable listen, fairly predictable story line but with some interesting twists.
Touched on some good topics such as eating disorders, friendships, teenage bullying
Main character a bit irritating at times with a fair bit of repetition

A fun read, narration a bit annoying

This is an easy, entertaining listen with a fairly predictable ending but fun nonetheless! The narration is a bit annoying with an accent that sometimes sounds like she’s trying to be American - it didn’t put me off listening but I know it’s something that can be too annoying for other people.

Not bad but not great

saw the twist coming.
presenter voice wasn't for me.
ok to have on in the background but if you left the room you wouldn't miss much.

For the more patient and tolerant

The story was good, characters really came alive! The narrator drove me up the wall!!! She kept making these huge pauses, sometimes in the middle of a sentence!! I kept looking at my stereo to see if it paused or something was wrong! This made it sooooo difficult for me to finish the book but the story and characters and plot made me persevere. Just be aware... I could be sensitive in my perception but I am so glad it's over.

Non-stereotypical life story with romance

This builds on the personal story of one of the previous book ("Sorry, Not Sorry") characters and it is not just a story involving romance but rather a personal growth story, which is not too heavy or deep but not shallow either. Just a nice read/listen where you can't help but root for the characters.
