What happens when the girl next door becomes ‘that girl off the telly.’ There are some things in life you can always rely on. Living in the shadow of your ‘perfect’ brother Joey, getting the flu over Christmas, and your Mother showing you up in the supermarket. Then there are some things you really don’t count on happening: a good dose of fame, getting completely trashed at an awards ceremony, and catching your fella doing something unmentionable on your wedding day. This is my story, it’s dead tragic. You have been warned... Jodie xx

The watching of the awards with her parents
made me laugh out loud,

"Loved this book"
Funny, moving, Scouse!
It was not my typical read at all but after several crime thrillers I thought I would try something lighter. It reminded me of a Carla Lane sitcom.
She managed to bring the characters to life in such a way you felt You knew the family.
I got a couple of strange looks as I laughed out loud listening to this whilst walking the dog.
A really enjoyable listen. Has made me want to listen to more like it.
"Great performance. ...."
Great narration and instantly engaging, within 10 mins I was hooked. Ultimately I felt the book was a bit overlong, but an enjoyable listen nonetheless. ...
"I loved this book"
For the first 10 minutes I didn't think I would like this book but then I was hooked!! I thought Leanne Best narrated it wonderfully. I fell in love with the McGee family and cringed and laughed in equal measure.
"Jonathan Harvey ...... That lads my world!"
Made me laugh out loud and not many books succeed in that. Poignant and hard hitting at times, but the Scouse humour never fails, that unique quality of being able to see the comedy in the tragic.
The performance was 'bangin' from a real Scouser rather than an actor trying to copy the accent, Leanne Jones' rendition was 'fab', she WAS Jodie.
'Dead gutted ' when it came to an end. I'll miss Jodie's stories. Jonathan how about a follow up on Jodie's antics???
As they say in Liverpool it was 'boss'
"A great narration brings this book alive"
Light entertainment that's enjoyable right from the start. The narrator brings the central character alive with lots of laughs along the way
"Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!"
A fun and frothy romp, a little predictable in places, but some great one liners and situations that draw on Harvey's TV work. A tour de force performance from Leanne Best - cracking!
"Good fun, brilliant narration"
The narrator was great. Added real character to the story.
It is chick lit so Sophie Kinsella and the like are very similar. Having said that it was a good story with great characters.
The wedding. You sort of know whats coming but it is a great section.
A great, enjoyable book.
I loved this book, entertaining from start to finish. Leanne Best was fantastic and perfect for this part.
This is a great book full of laughs. It is well written and Leanne Best does a brilliant job at narrating. Just listening to a Liverpudian accent makes me smile so I was hooked from the 1st chapter.
