WINNER of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction * WINNER of the Comedy Women In Print Prize * 'Funny, charming, odd-in-the-best-way and gorgeously uplifting! A delight from start to finish' - Marian Keyes * 'I read all of Reasons To Be Cheerful in one glorious gulp' - Caitlin Moran 

Teenager Lizzie Vogel has a new job as a dental assistant. This is not as glamorous as it sounds. At least it means mostly getting away from her alcoholic, nymphomaniacal, novel-writing mother.

But, if Lizzie thinks being independent means sex with her boyfriend (he prefers bird-watching), strict boundaries (her boss keeps using her loo) or self-respect (surely only actual athletes get fungal foot infections?) she's still got a lot more growing up to do.
