"Moran followed her award-winning, New York Times best-selling feminist memoir, How To Be a Woman, with the widely and hand-clappingly reviewed debut novel, How To Build a Girl. In this sequel, 18-year-old Johanna Morrigan (aka Dolly Wilde) lives in London and writes for an of-the-moment music magazine. She's jealous of friend John's big BritPop music success-until she has the idea of writing a column about the ups and down of getting and being famous." -- Publisher's annotation.

From Library Staff

I loved How to Build a Girl and love this sequel just as much. No one is better at calling out misogyny and double standards than Moran. It doesn't hurt that her creation, Dolly, is wholly unique and oh so very funny. Recommended by Lynnanne.
