Publisher Description

'A compulsive and hilarious read. In Maggie, Hartley has created one of those indelible characters of whom we must thoroughly disapprove and yet cannot help but love.' Karen Joy Fowler

Maggie Cotton's life is a hot mess.

In one day, she's dumped by her boyfriend, disinherited by her mum, and kicked off the three-year degree course she'd stretched to a decade. And that was before she received the letter saying she owed the government $70,000.

But that's no reason to grow up, is it?

With a decrepit 1960s caravan to call home, Maggie has to prove to her mother she can survive without a safety net, stop her loyal best friend Jen from marrying a scumbag, and convince her sexy workmate Rueben that she's not a walking disaster. For someone who's spent her life avoiding hard work, she sure can move mountains when she's got a little motivation - just don't ask her to move the caravan.

Ascha81 ,

Very modern, great comedy

Recommended for young women especially. Lovely writing techniques, cracking sense of humour, realist ideas that are very in step with today’s culture.
Narrator is young and needs a bit of practise in comic timing/delivery but has a sweet timbre and is pleasant to listen to.

Fun and easy going

This book is fun and easy going. Although I enjoyed it I never really fell in love with the main character despite really wanting to like her.

Hilarious escapist story

Maggie is a lovable dropkick. I laughed out loud in many places. Really nicely read by Miranda Tapsell
