‘Have you ever messed up so badly you had to leave the country? This feelgood journey contains one of the best vagina jokes ever. We didn’t want it to end’ Heat Magazine
Alice is turning thirty and is stuck in a rut. Her friends are all coupling up and settling down, while she’s still working as a temp, trying (and failing) not to shag her terrible ex, getting thrown out of clubs, and accidentally sexting her boss…
She decides to throw caution to the wind and jets off on a round-the-world adventure to #FindTheFun and find herself. Of course, she’s no more likely to find the answer to true happiness on the beach in Thailand than she is at the electric beach in Tooting, but at least in Thailand there’s paddleboard yoga.
Can Alice find happiness on her travels? Or is she more likely to lose herself all over again…?
