'Heart-warming and hilarious, this is a book you need on your shelves in these bleak times.' Irish Times
Perfect for fans of Sex Education and Derry Girls.
Alex is a rebel with a purple fauxhawk and biker boots.
St Mary's Catholic School is the strict boarding school where she's currently trapped.
Despite trying everything she can to get expelled, she's still stuck with the nuns, the prudish attitude and the sexism. So Alex decides to take matters into her own hands. She's going to stage the school's first ever production of The Vagina Monologues . . .
Trouble is, no one else at St Mary's can even bear to say the word 'vagina' out loud!
A riotously funny novel about the importance of friendship and finding your voice.
Bad Habits is an absolute joy of a read, carefully balancing comedy ("I'm a feminist! I place bets on women's basketball games.") with a nuanced take on female friendships and being a teenage girl judged unfavourably by nuns, priests, peers and the world at large. Heart-warming and hilarious, this is a book you need on your shelves in these bleak times.
This snarky feminist treat is properly laugh-out-loud funny
Funny, fierce and feminist, Bad Habits is full of big characters, big heart, and even bigger laughs. Flynn Meaney has somehow packed laughs into every line while still taking on everything from priests to the patriarchy. I loved it
