So, I live in a football-mad household. I went to my first match when I was three and got tickets free from my school. When I was eleven I got my first season ticket with my mam, dad and brother, and went for about four or five years. So I get this book. My dad’s idea of ‘dressing up’ is upgrading to his football T-shirt as opposed to his home kit shirt.
The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even is a very funny and light read. It follows Lexi and her boyfriend of seven years, Will. Will is a massive sports fan, and is in love with Southampton football club, meaning Lexi is a ‘sports widow’. On the wedding day of one of Lexi’s best friends, Will is seemingly struck down with food poisoning. Lexi feels immensely guilty for leaving him for the wedding, but that soon dissipates when one of her work colleagues sends her a picture of Will at the Southampton match!
This is such a feel good book. I loved Cara, Lexi’s other sex-obsessed best friend. She was so funny! This reminded me of something that Sophie Kinsella would write, so if you’re a fan of hers then I would definitely recommend this book.
