I wrote this, so I'm rather biased and won't review it (that would be weird), but you can find out more here: http://extol-lightupvirginmary.blogsp...

Really enjoyed reading this from start to finish. Dark, humorous and captivating throughout.

I loved this book . Stephanie is amazing, you won't meet another character like her in a book any time soon - she is a real original. This is a book for anyone who has ever been bored working in an office, or has desperately tried to find a way out of working in an office. It's shocking, it's funny and it will keep you reading, gripped right to the end, I can't wait for the next novel from Ms Rose!

I read this because my friend forwarded me an article from Ideastap about this author writing about mental illness. I'm a mental health nurse so I was interested to read this book.

First Aid Kit Girl is about Stephanie, a twenty something feeling stranded in a job she despises - something that many can relate to. Stephanie's way of coping with her absolute hopelessness is to self harm.

I gave this book 2* (if Goodreads allowed half stars it would be 2 & a half) because if this is a representat

This is the story of Steph. She hates her job and her colleagues. She likes to cut herself. (That's not a spoiler, is it? There's a razor blade on the cover.) She uses a first aid kit to self-repair.

Then some light shines on her world when new staffers turn up.

This is a compelling, easy read, as long as you don't mind stories that revolve around self-harmers, I guess. I tore through the whole thing in three sittings.

It's got some Palahniuk stuff going on, which is a plus for me: urban/suburban

It feels to me like a cross between a Kafka-esque bureaucratic nightmare and Bridget Jones' Diary. I could easily imagine a controversy surrounding this book if people get the idea that it's encouraging self-harm. It's at the same time humorous in a very black way and really quite hard, almost vicious. If you're hard enough you can read it, probably not the choice for delicate old maiden aunts or Colonel Blimp uncles. I think the ending is the best ever.
