No dating sabbatical
But talking about how it falls short of its later cousin does it a bit of a disservice when the fact of the matter is that I enjoyed reading it and I'm glad I picked it up.
I loved her from the get-go and any twenty-something will find it easy to relate to Sass.It’s taken me a few days (football/X Factor got in the way it seems! We learn early on about Sass’s six break-ups which have caused her to start her Detox and they were equally amusing and cringe-worthy in the way in which they happened.I could sympathise with Sass as we learn of each of her break-ups but, wow, she hadn’t half dated some losers. The book actually skips over the three-months of the actual Detox and I thought I’d missed something out, as the blurb makes it appear as if after the three months, Sass will immediately give it all up.I actually love the fact she embraced her new single status and went out of her way to not go out on dates.It was actually quite a refreshing experience to see Sass want to stay single, rather than go back on all of her hard work throughout the detox and begin dating losers again.
