“Ever since I was eighteen I’ve wanted to be as cool as Caitlin Moran. Now this book has shown me how. Witty, wise and wonderful, this is an indispensable guide to Ladyhood. I laughed. I cried. I found out what my favourite writer calls her vagina.” — Lauren Laverne "
I read this back in December and fell in love with it! Caitlin Moran is someone women need in their lives. She's funny and says it how it is. That is exactly what her book is about. It shows how life is like for women using her own experience and there is something in it we can all relate too. Hilariously funny, it also helps demonstrate the need for feminism in today's society and the way in which it should go. This is what is brilliant about it. It isn't a man hating book in the slightest which is why i like it i think. It shows the need for women to come together and kind of revitilise feminism in a way which is relevant today.
Besides that, this book will have you in stitches, i lost count of the amount if times i sat there and laughed. It shows you how life really is for a girl. The things we go through and our lives. It shows how she managed to get where she is today and the laughs and cries she had along the way. It is brutally honest and this is something that i love about it. If you are a girl and you haven't read it yet...get on it! Young girls will love it and it will show them the importance of being comfortable with themselves.
The book is one of my favorite books of 2011 and it secured Caitlin Moran as one of my favorite writers as i started reading her column now too and love them just as much.
Want to know more? You can get her book from all the major book shops - Waterstones, WHSmith and Amazon. Trust me you will love it.
