  • Derek's Picks: The Best Quizzes Of Derek O'Brien

    This is a book of pictures.

    Of a park bench and a prescription. And a toothbrush in a mug. It’s got half-lit cigarettes and broken geysers. And a cute apartment in Prague. There’s a fortune cookie, some pigeons in cages and stars tumbling from the sky. There’s the usual traffic, a digital wristwatch and a violin from Uncle James.

    We can go on, but you’d rather see for yourself.

    For we think this book has pictures.

    But some say it’s full of poems.

    After their first bestseller, Terribly Tiny Tales and Penguin come together on the same page once again.

    Hilarious and a timely look at women and our bodies’ Juno Dawson

    ‘Honest, rebellious and completely refreshing’ Fearne Cotton

    Charli Howard grew up thinking that she wasn’t good enough. She wasn’t pretty enough. She wasn’t rich enough. She wasn’t thin enough. Fitting in wasn’t exactly easy. Looking at the smiling girls in magazines, she came to the obvious conclusion: to be accepted, she has to be ‘perfect’. She had to be a model.

    But what magazines don’t tell you is that you can’t Photoshop your problems away, and they can Photoshop a lot. So, when you’re the thinnest you’ve ever been, your agency fires you, and you’re battling anxiety and an eating disorder to boot, how do you get through it? You get angry, go viral and discover that, after all that, you’re not alone. At least that’s what Charli did.

Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world – theirs and yours.
