Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The tale of a girl who enjoys casual sex, takes class A drugs, binge drinks and gets chucked out of night clubs while trying to finish her degree in fashion design. It is a quick, easy read of a shallow life that needs more fulfilment and doesn’t seem to know how to find it.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Low Expectations by Elizabeth Aaron

Georgie has a glamorous career in fashion. Her boss doesn't know her name, but working for a genius will pay off one day. She hopes. She also has great friends. Granted, they're sometimes a bit superficial, but who wants to discuss a global crisis on a Friday night? And she's enjoying her single life. Eighteen months of celibacy, and not a hot prospect in sight. Perhaps life's not quite what she was hoping for...But how can she change it, and what does she really want? Stuck somewhere between a quarter-life crisis and self-fulfillment, Georgie is determined that this year, everything will be different. Armed only with her sense of humour, some black eyeliner and her best attempt at 'charming', she's on the way. But just how long will the new improved Georgie last? Low Expectations is a smart, raunchy, laugh-out-loud novel about what it means to be a 'Real Woman' today.

'Hamster Mouth More Lethal Than Listerine', accompanied by Aaron's own illustrations, which I adored'
