Format read: Finished copy via publisher
But when Grand Central sent me a finished copy of the book and cheerfully insisted I'd like it, I knew I had to go for it. Because this was the team that introduced me to the glorious book The Royal We, and so I trusted their taste.
Jayne's book is divided into sections, including food, jobs and more. Each section contains a number of snappily written poems, with wit, confessions and insight into just what goes through the mind of a young person, as they struggle to make it in the world. Jayne is especially good at verbalizing and sketching out what many of us likely think but never say; and it's that candid, bemused honesty that makes this slim volume so incredibly enjoyable.
Bottom line: This is a fun, quick read that anyone can relate to, and will absolutely enjoy reading.
