This is the diary of single mum Poppy Parker, an ordinary, insecure woman in her thirties. She was dumped unceremoniously four years ago by the love of her life and now raises her son alone. Poppy knows that her life would be perfect if she were a size 8 with a flat bottom, large ample bosom and a man who wanted more than a quick fumble on top of the photocopier. Enter the world according to Ms Parker and chart her progress as she strives to become a "respectable mother". This, however, is impossible as Poppy has mastered the art of self-doubt in everything. If only she could be her mother's favourite, her boss's favourite. She even doubts she is her son's favourite parent even though her son has never met his father. Poppy yearns to wake up one morning to find she has transformed into her thinner, prettier sister. Will all be perfect when her son's father returns into her life? Will she finally be allowed to write "proper" news stories at work and will her neighbour really turn out to be a serial killer? The potential for Poppy to find happiness has always been there- it's her fault if she never realises it. Review from Amazon.co.uk - I've been there got the t-shirt and now the book! I think I am Poppy. Tells it like it is and very real. This is not just a book for single mums like I was but also blokes should read it too. (Lit Chick UK)
