My Review; This book is brilliant! It made me laugh out loud. I loved it. An easy, light-hearted, hilarious read. I loved both Tara and Stella, mother and daughter and they couldn’t be more different… Or are they? Thos story starts to turn part way through and I was backing Tara the whole time. In parts I did think Stella wasn’t a great mother… But she just showed her love in different ways with the best intentions.
This book is perfect for young adult, chick-lit lovers. It highlights how we currently live as most of us these days do have the whole Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. That’s your online life. It’s not a long story but one I throughally enjoyed.
I loved how a food diary was included, blog posts and lists. Makes the story different, fresher. A well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. Cheered me right up.
