An incredible book! While it started lighter, with Bridget Jones-esque dry wit about (lesbian) dating life in London, the tone went darker as it explored Julia's first relationship with a woman. This girlfriend turns out to be controlling and emotionally abusive. It's painful to watch, which is a testament to Davies' writing. I also loved the friends, family, and job portions of the book. It had me laughing out loud throughout. Highly recommended!
