Review by boppisces
27-year-old Jenny Taylor (aka Fanny due to the genitalia inference) meets Joe King (joking) and is instantly attracted. Unfortunately her 'safe' long-term boyfriend Matt has proposed and her mother has just moved in after leaving her father so it's not a good time. Fanny is still affected by a period of major depression in her late teens and follows her best friend Phillipa's ''Smiling Fanny Manifesto' on a daily basis with sometimes hilarious results. A really nice read.
