A cynical and emotionally distant teenager sneers at others for falling in love, but then falls in love herself.
What a stupid expression that is in the first place: To fall in love.
Like you fall into a ditch or something.
Maybe people need to look where they're going.
As far as Phoebe Davies is concerned, love is to be avoided at all costs. Why would you spend your life worrying about something that turns you into a complete moron? If her best friend Polly is anything to go by, the first sniff of a relationship makes you forget about your friends (like, hello?), get completely obsessed with sex (yawn) and bang on constantly about a person who definitely isn't as great as you think they are.
So Phoebe isn't going to fall in love, ever.
But then she meets Emma...
NOTE : Contains very strong language throughout, and explicit discussion of sex and orgasms, although no actual sex scenes.
Hilarious misadventures of our miserable heroine have great appeal, and unexpectedly moving denouncement adds emotional depth. Really enjoyable debut
