Sophie McCartney of Tired and Tested fame has built a cult following for her no-holds-barred approach to parenting. She is a hoot. And this debut is an absolute page-turner if I ever read one.

Potty mouth Cara Stringer is 37 years young. And I bloody love her. Her dark humour. Her penchant for profanity. Her crazy-ass family. Her girls, her gorgeous girls who've been best friends since their catholic high school days.

Her bestie is about to get married and it looks like they are finally going to make it to the white island, the place at the top of their bucket list. Post A-levels, they were all set for a Teletext £250 one star accommodation pilgrimage to Ibiza but they never made it. Now it's time. With maybe a few more grey hairs and fine lines than they'd have wanted. But go they will. The brood will be the belles of the ball. The island of hedonism might just prove to be the answer to all of Cara's problems. The home of letting loose partying and making bad life choices. What could possibly go wrong?

They’re never going to get the opportunity again to leave their normal lives, inhibitions, anxiety and kids behind for an actual justifiable reason so they intend to embrace Ibiza to the max. If you've ever wondered how it’s possible to love your kids implicitly whilst also fantasising about being a childless free spirit, living your best life on the hedonistic party island of Ibiza. Then this book is for you.

I cackled, snorted and howled my way through. It should come with a warning, do not read on the tube. It will cause people to stare. A lot. And then peek to see what the devil is making you laugh so hard. It's got it all: laughs galore, secrets, lies, betrayal, sibling rivalry and an adventure to end all adventures. From Cheshire to Ibiza to 24 hours in Vegas, pack your bags and get ready for this mums-on-tour romp. They show how us mums have the potential to rave when we know our next night out won’t be for at least another 15 years. Strap yourself in for this epic girls-only vacay, I'm joining them next year!
