March 2014 Guest Editor Jojo Moyes on How to be a Woman.
It's a tricky job, bringing up teenagers. And when my daughter hit 14 I gave her Moran's bestselling book, which addresses many of the issues young women face, but does so with humour and warmth, and without making men the enemy. She read it, had her mind blown, and promptly wrote Caitlin a four page fan letter. I wish all girls would read it.

There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain... Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? And do men secretly hate us? This title answers these questions and more.
Upon winning the Galaxy Book of the Year award, Caitlin Moran said: “Obviously Rear Of The Year is the one I’ve always been gunning for, but since I found out it’s judged on “form” rather than “sheer volume”, then Book of the Year is not only a total honour and thrill, but also enables me to chow down on a hogroast over Christmas without worrying about fitting into my jeggings.”
