Description

*Winner of the Romantic Comedy Novel of the Year RNA Award 2015*'My love story may not be the sort you read about in books or see in films . . . Love stories have glorious highs and ghastly lows. But when it comes to my own life, I'd have to say, you can keep your fabulous highs and I'll happily steer clear of the terrible lows.'After a rocky start in life, Jenny Taylor, 27, star receptionist at the local doctors surgery, has things all worked out thanks to a list of ten daily things she must do to keep the blues at bay. But her life is turned upside down when she meets aspiring musician Joe King. And reliable boyfriend Matt proposes. And then her mum leaves her dad and moves into Jenny's flat determined to 'bond'.Hilarious, honest and heartbreaking, Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy is an edgy modern love story that will make you look at your own love story in a whole new way. Lucy-Anne Holmes is the bestselling author of 50 Ways to Find a Lover.

Review quote

I'm Just a Girl... is a real joy to read from start to finish - warm-hearted, laugh-out-loud funny, and full of surprises. Lucy-Anne Holmes treats serious themes with a refreshingly light touch, bringing her trademark humour to life's hurdles. In short, this is everything you need to sweep away those winter blues * Vanessa Greene, author of The Vintage Teacup Club * Hilarious, honest and heartbreaking...totally absorbing, you will be entranced from the first few pages until the very end, we absolutely loved it. Highly recommended! * Hot Brands, Cool Places * Hilarious and wise in equal measure * Elle Magazine * A feisty, fun, romantic read * Sunday Mirror * A witty and heartwarming love story * Closer Magazine * Jenny is an appealing protagonist with a great sense of humour . . . I laughed, I empathised and I enjoyed seeing the world through her eyes. This is a witty, honest and thoroughly modern love story * Daily Mail * Lucy-Anne Holmes manages to make you laugh a lot and cry a lot. I really love her books * Katie Fforde * Hilarious, sweet and all too relatable. Had me laughing out loud from the first page. Which was embarrassing * Lindsey Kelk *
