Absolutely LOVED this! So true and could really relate to all the stories. I literally laughed out loud at many parts and would definitely recommend it :) I couldn't read it quick enough and was sad when I've finished it, should have read it slowly and savoured it.

It started fine and i had some laughs but by the middle it became really boring. For that reason i'm giving the book only 2 stars.

I'm assuming it's self-published?
