4.5 stars! What an incredible book! While at first it started lighter, with very Bridget Jones-esque dry wit about dating life in London (but about coming out as a lesbian), the tone went darker as it explored Julia's first serious relationship with a woman. This girlfriend turns out to be controlling and emotionally abusive. It's painful to watch Julia go through this, which is a testament to Davies' writing. I also loved the friends, family, and job portions of the book. It does have an HFN ending, which I appreciate; I wished that portion was a little stretched out into the last sections of the book, I wanted more of the good things in her life once she got shit sorted out. This book had me laughing out loud throughout. Highly recommended!

"Nevertheless, [Leon and I] stayed together, right up until he dumped me just after graduation because he wanted to 'travel the world' and be 'free of ties'. He moved to Peckham three months later and started a graduate training scheme in management consultancy.""
