Move over Bridget Jones theres another diarist in town and she is funnier, savvier and even more relatable. Like so many of us, Celia wants her life to be perfect, but she isnt quite sure what perfect is. Watching her navigate that journey will make you laugh and cry all in the same chapter. Filled with witty observations, this book has just the right mix of tenderness and joy. -- Natasha Lester,internationalbestselling author ofThe Three Lives of Alix St Pierre
