Unlike A Virgin by Lucy-Anne Holmes


Unlike A Virgin by Lucy-Anne Holmes

Is Gracie in love for the very first time?You know that bit in The X Factor, when the singer tells everyone about the rocky road they travelled to pursue their dream? Well, that's Gracie Flowers' story.Gracie is very focused for a woman of almost twenty-six. Her favourite book is 'The 5-Year Plan: Making the Most of Your Life'. And her five-year plan is going very well. That is, until she is usurped from her big promotion by a handsome, posh idiot; she is dumped by her boyfriend; and discovers her loopy mother is facing bankruptcy.Hormones awry and ice cream over-ordered, a dream Gracie thought she'd buried ten years ago starts to resurface. A dream that reminds her of the girl she used to be and everything she wanted to become.


Hilarious, sweet and all too relatable. Had me laughing out loud from the first page. Which was embarrassing * Lindsey Kelk *
