'Perfect for the gin drinker in your life.' - The Sun
Have you ever...?
A) Wondered whether the cucumber in your artisan G&T counts towards your five a day?
B) Vowed to spend a wholesome night in, maybe juicing, but surrendered to the inevitable cycle of off-license wine and Facebook stalking almost immediately?
C) Binge-watched an entire box set without even a shred of FOMO?
If the answer to any of these questions is `yes!', the Mills & Boon Modern Girl's Guide to Happy Hour is for you: a guide to surviving a 21st century social life - with a feminist twist.
Ada Adverse was brought up in a deeply puritanical household where looking at a cake or using words containing more than one vowel were considered decadences punishable by a night in the coal cellar. But at fifteen she ran away from home and is now the world's leading authority on Having Fun, which is definitely an actual job, she has `Fungineer' printed on her business cards to prove it, though in retrospect she should have been more clear that this does not mean she specialises in mushrooms. Ada's hobbies include topiary, mazes, homing pigeons, flea circuses, forming imaginary bands in her head, embalming things, tattoos, pylons, and the films of Billy Wilder. Ada's dislikes include predatory mcaws, getting out the wrong side of the bed, collections of masks, and porcelain dolls with realistic teeth.
