Wanted it to be funnier

How to Build a Girl
How to Build a Girl

By: Caitlin Moran

Genre:  Adult fiction

2 out of 5

This is another book I expected to really enjoy. It may have been because I was sick when I read it, but I didn’t find it nearly as funny as I hoped. Furthermore, I found the book way to unrealistic – no matter how talented you are (and she wasn’t) I don’t see a 14 year old becoming a music journalist and quitting school. While there were definitely some funny parts, I was really hoping by the end she would grow up and have some revelations that she was going about her life all wrong, but I guess I was wrong.
