(UN)LIKE A VIRGIN
This is the story of Gracie Flowers. She has a 5-year plan in place and it’s all going nicely, thank you very much. Great job, own flat, long-term boyfriend. Gracie is feeling good.
But as she reaches her twenty-sixth birthday, her tight control on life is threatened from all fronts. She is usurped from her promotion at work by a handsome, posh twat; dumped by her boyfriend; then finds out he had the decency to accidentally impregnate her before he left. Oh and her mum is going bankrupt. With her hormones going mental, Gracie finds herself stockpiling ice cream, being sick on her shoes and having inappropriate thoughts about inappropriate men.
But, at the same time, a dream she thought she’d buried ten years ago starts to resurface. It reminds Gracie of the girl she used to be and the woman she hoped she’d become – and it stubbornly refuses to go away.
