15-year-old Marsha is wild, rebellious, and has gone off the rails. She goes out clubbing until very late, gets incredibly drunk, and sleeps around. A lot. When her best friend Faith bets her fifty pounds she won’t be able to get Rich, a boy in their year, to sleep with her, she agrees. Boys are all the same, and Marsha knows what they like, why would this one be any different? Except Rich is different, he’d rather a relationship than a one-night stand. What Marsha doesn’t realise is, is that so ...more
In all honesty I wasn't sure about the book from the start but I gave it a go and I'm so happy that I did it, there is just something about this story that is miserable yet beautiful. And I'm not gonna lie I got emotional in the end of the book, to me it's defiantly worth reading! Love it
It was a... I was going to say a beautiful book, but that's maybe not the right word. I don't think you can call a book filled with mindless sex and drinking beautiful. But a girl who meets a boy and realises there's more to life, that love is possible and everyone deserves happiness, that the right person can turn your life around, that's beautiful. Joanna Kenrick is fast becoming my favourite author.
I was introduced by a friend. She showed me the first PARAGRAPH and immediately I was hooked ! Main character, Marsha is a little wild && carefree. She and her also wild & carefree mate make bets to see who can 'score' more. 1 day, the friend bet Marsha to hook up with a very cute, very innocent guy. Suddenly, Marsha feels something she has never felt before. A real friendship? Love? :)
I enjoyed this book I bought it while I was on holiday with my family as I needed something to read on the journey back home. I read it fairly quickly and liked it. I loaned it to my sister and she told me she enjoyed it too. One thing I will say is it might not be suitable for some younger readers as it does contain mature content meant for older teens or young adults.

It just wasn't all that interesting, I gave up halfway through, picked it back up and read it again, but the relationship storyline was unlikely, and honestly, who'd want to read about a teen slag?


I enjoyed reading this very much. Love the theme of the story!
Its a shame i cant get/find it for my kindle but a great read
