Description

I'd been warned - in French, no less. By a tram-riding, mermaid-swaying, wolf-eaten, peace-sign flipping friend. I knew she wouldn't be happy if I stayed out here by the pool, with Jed's nail tracing the length of my neck.But I didn't want to go inside. I didn't want another drink. I wanted to stay out here and see what would happen.What's a girl to do when her parents have split up; her mum's trawling Tinder; and one of her best friends has decided not to invite her to the biggest party of the year, which she then has to watch unfold on everyone else's social media?If you're a girl called MC, you get mad as hell, that's what you do.But what begins as one girl's private, no-holds-barred rant soon snowballs in the most public way possible.A funny, heartfelt novel for anyone who's ever wished they hadn't pressed send. 'I'm loving My Life as a Hashtag SO MUCH. Gab's writing is delicious, as always...a sensationally good read.'FIONA WOOD
