    People’s lives are endlessly fascinating and Lindsay’s book is no exception…
    This heartwarming and quirky story tracing Lindsay’s progress through life, has really funny and poignant moments in it, as she searches for a way to make sense of it all and find out where to go next. Her observations on everything from nosey neighbours to entertaining a very famous pop star in her house really come alive and make for a genuinely lovely read.
