Description of this Book

Forget Instagram and Snapchat filters, there is no hiding when it comes to Lex Croucher's frank and candid text. This is THE survival guide to making it through adulthood and coming out on the other side in one piece. Even if most of the time you feel like a human courgetti going through an emotional spiralizer. From learning to love your body, 'wrap yourself up in love, like you're a delicious sausage roll - you're on the same team'; dealing with crushes 'is it alright to only fancy that one actor from a superhero film with a slightly weird face, and commit to them fully, forsaking all others?'; making friends 'sometimes they are your comrades-in-arms, sometimes they're the only ones who can remember where you left your phone', and absolutely everything else in between, Lex Croucher tells it like it is. Through humour, anecdotes, everyday situations, and brilliant design, girls will realise that we're all going through the same (sometimes embarrassing) situations and thinking the same (sometimes loopy) thoughts. Lex's effortlessly witty text will help girls (and women) realise that they are not alone!
