“The freshest, frankest, wisest, ballsiest memoir I've read. Daring, eloquent, and important: a glorious tale of one woman’s triumph over the past and her own fears as she learns how to be a single parent in a world where single is still a dirty word. I cried heaps and adored every page.” – Emma Jane Unsworth, author of Animals.

“I just finished Emily Morris’ memoir and I ADORED it - funny, sad, moving, gorgeously written. I recommend it HARD!” – Daisy Buchanan, author of How to Be a Grown Up.

“I ripped through Emily Morris' memoir of young single motherhood and was rooting for her all the way. Viva My Shitty Twenties!” – Amy Liptrot, author of The Outrun.
