My Review

What a fun ride.
Really fast paced, gripped me from the beginning and I read it in one day.

Sarah Collins is a serial daydreamer who is being bullied at work. She doesn't want to admit to being the loser that the bullies think she is so she invents a boyfriend called Steve who is on tour with his band. She almost convinces herself he is real and even books a holiday to go and see him.

Whilst in Spain she meets some interesting people and has an exciting adventure including a glamorous party on a yacht.

The whole story is told from Sarah's point of view and it races along with a whole load of laughs.  I loved this story and enjoyed every minute of it. Sarah is just a genuine girl who wouldn't harm a fly and is just trying to get through life as best as she can. She is an endearing and likeable character, and I was really cheering for her to get one over on the bullies who were horrible characters.

Her dad and his Dolly Parton lookalike girlfriend, her religious nan and her slutty best friend all added to the fun.

I would thoroughly recommend this funny, happy book. Thanks to Lizzie Fayke for the ARC.

About the Author

Lizzie has been writing since she could hold a crayon. At school she loved writing poems, plays and dirty limericks to impress the boys. Her English teacher told her she had too much imagination – she accepted it as a compliment.

Lizzie grew up and got a day job but she still loves writing. Her debut novel, Daydream Believer is out now and the sequel is progressing well.

When she has spare time she spends it gazing at handbags and thinking up names for the 3 bulldogs she aspires to own (oh, and Googling ‘is there a cure yet for pet allergies?’).
