Summary

"I'm okay!" The best-selling author of The Anti-Cool Girl returns with a devastating, heartbreaking, brilliant, brave, and laugh-out-loud funny memoir of telling lies and being on the brink....

"I had made it! All my dreams had come true. I had an operating fridge, I was doing brilliantly, and I had written the memoir to prove it. I even had online haters. I had conquered life at 30 and nothing was ever going to go wrong again!"

It was all going so well for Rosie Waterland. Until it wasn't. 

Until, shockingly, something awful happened and Rosie went into agonising free fall. 

Until late one evening, she found herself in a hospital emergency bed, trembling and hooked to a drip. Over the course of that long, painful night, she kept thinking about how ironic it was, that right in the middle of writing a book about lies, she'd ended up telling the most significant lie of all. 

A raw, beautiful, sad, shocking - and very, very funny - memoir of all the lies we tell others and the lies we tell ourselves.

The Anti-Cool Girl was shortlisted for the 2016 Indie Book Awards and for the 2016 ABIA Awards for Biography of the Year, and in addition was the winner of the 2016 ABIA Awards People's Choice for the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year.

Critic reviews

"Hilarious, wise, gutsy, clear-eyed, devastating and uplifting. It's a marvel." (Richard Glover)

"Waterland's writing is...individual, wounded, brilliant and hilarious." (Sydney Morning Herald)

"If Augusten Burroughs and Lena Dunham abandoned their child in an Australian housing estate, she'd write this heartbreaking, hilarious book." (Dominic Knight, The Chaser)

Rosie’s books with Caroline Lee’s narration are a winning combination!

Rosie knows how to make you laugh and cry within the same sentence. The stories are not always easy listening, but they sure keep you hooked. I love Caroline Lee’s voice and could keep on listening to these books forevermore. Thank you for a very entertaining listen. This second book was a good follow up to the first, and I look forward to more prose in the future.
