    I am half way through this book and I am really enjoying it. I like the fact it seems so true to life. I find some of it quite funny. Some of it is a bit rude but I actually like that so it just depends on what you like. I find it hard to read books as I lose interest but this has really been a page turner for me. Never read this sort of book before but it’s a good read. Enjoy!
