About this deal
Rarely have I read a book about a more frustrating heroine than this one. Imagine every negative stereotype women have, cumulated into one character. She is insecure about everything concerning her body. The amount of comments about her body from herself and everyone around her were so annoying. She is a size 12 ffs!
I guess, in the end she makes the right choice, but this took her 99% of the book to figure out. And she didn't even know that she had to figure this out until literally the last second. The Glasgow Kiss, popularly known as a headbutt, is a cultural gesture of affection originating in Glasgow, Scotland. Originating in the working-class subculture of Glasgow in the 1960s, it is now most commonly associated with the city and its inhabitants. Despite its rough reputation, the Glasgow Kiss is largely a playful gesture of greeting and camaraderie exchanged among friends, with no ill will intended. The sheer volume of grammatical, spelling and formatting issues put me off this book from the start. It’s very evidently self published and would have benefitted from an editor.Meet Zara Smith: 29, single and muddling her way through life as a trainee nurse in Glasgow.
