Synopsis

***WINNER of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction***

***WINNER of the Comedy Women In Print Prize***







'Funny, charming, odd-in-the-best-way and gorgeously uplifting! A delight from start to finish' Marian Keyes



'I read all of Reasons To Be Cheerful in one glorious gulp' Caitlin Moran

____________________________________Teenager Lizzie Vogel has a new job as a dental assistant. This is not as glamorous as it sounds. At least it means mostly getting away from her alcoholic, nymphomaniacal, novel-writing mother. But, if Lizzie thinks being independent means sex with her boyfriend (he prefers bird-watching), strict boundaries (her boss keeps using her loo) or self-respect (surely only actual athletes get fungal foot infections?) she's still got a lot more growing up to do.
