About The Book

Maggie Gardiner isn’t good enough.

She had six glasses of wine at a work conference, woke up covered in curry and has accidentally ended up living with the boring guy who was supposed to be a one night stand. Something has to change.

Every other twenty-something on Instagram seems to have their sh*t together, so why doesn’t she? And so she makes a list. When she’s ticked off every item, she’ll become Maggie 2.0 – the best version of herself, and the one she wants to be. Won’t she…?

1. Go vegan. It worked for that girl on Twitter.

2. Take up yoga – that woman she hate-follows swears by it

3. Start practising mindfulness – all those people can’t be wrong…

4. Quit smoking. It’s not 1999.
