I can see how leaving Sydney for London after finding out your girlfriend cheating on you with your roommate could make someone grumpy. And Jess’s grumpiness is probably what I like best about her. Or rather the way it translates into dry wit. She could be the most annoying character but instead Clare Lydon managed to make her fun.
Another thing I really enjoyed was the relationship between Jess and her sister-in-law and roommate Kate, the banter between them, dyke buddy style.
Very enjoyable book, made even better by the narration (I wasn’t sure about Emily Bennet’s voice at first but ended loving it for this novel).
