Stay-at-home mum Fran Clarke is approaching both her 37th birthday and crisis point. Once a brilliant voiceover artist, she now hasn't worked for years. The talent has not deserted her, only her self-belief. With her confidence shot and a husband who cannot help her, most days all she sees is the bottom of a wine glass.

An extra star for being the kind of book you can finish in a span of hours, and standing up to the expectation of being a light and entertaining read after a heavy one.
I picked up this book in the bargain rack of Chapter's and was thoroughly surprised at just how much I enjoyed it. Was definately funny (especially if you enjoy British humour) and very sad in some parts. The story is about a suburban stay-at-home mom who has lost her way and confidence. A story all mom's can relate to in one way or another.....truly couldn't put the book down.......quick and easy read.
1 star = I disliked this book so much that I couldn't stand to finish reading it, despite the fact that I'd spent five perfectly good dollars on it. I found the narrator completely unlikeable, the writing pedestrian, and the story uninteresting. Oh well!

hmm, no wonder nobody reads this, really confusing at first, plus it's boring lol
I liked the storyline, although it took a bit to get moving. Didn't like the swearing.
This was a good easy read.
