RaveThe Sydney Morning Herald (AUS)She has tapped into the Millennial zeitgeist with her smart, funny writing about sex and relationships among 20- and 30-somethings ...

But what really caught my eye in this compulsively readable novel was Rooney’s portrayal of the stress Alice suffers because of the huge success of her first novel ... A terrific read.
