August 2012 Debut of the Month.
Award-winning playwright Jonathan Harvey’s debut novel is a very funny, wickedly well-observed, romp through the life of rags to riches soap star Jodie McGee. Jodie, from a run down Liverpool council estate has always had big dreams – and they look to have come true – but what goes up must come down. We are pretty sure you’ll laugh a lot, be a little shocked, but not be able to stop turning the pages.
There are some things in life you can always rely on. Living in the shadow of your 'perfect' brother Joey, getting the flu over Christmas, and your Mother showing you up in the supermarket. Then there are some things you really don't count on happening: a good dose of fame, getting completely trashed at an awards ceremony, and catching your fella doing something unmentionable on your wedding day. This is my story, it's dead tragic. You have been warned...Jodie Xx
