Get Divorced, Be Happy

How becoming single turned out to be my happily ever after




From the hugely popular Scummy Mummies comedian Helen Thorn, this hilarious and empowering book on surviving break-ups and thriving as a single person comes at a time when there are more separations and divorces than ever.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

'Helen is the woman I want in my life when the shit hits the fan' - Bryony Gordon

What do you do when your relationship suddenly ends? How do you cope when the cosy 'coupley' future you had planned disappears?

Join comedian Helen Thorn from The Scummy Mummies as she haphazardly takes the plunge into single life for the first time in twenty-two years.

Helen shares her own roller coaster journey from the initial shock of a surprise separation, the messy months hanging out in her PJs through to the highs of rediscovering online dating, tiny pants, rock-solid female friendships and the glorious joy of just being by herself.

With the help of relationship experts and an army of women "who know", Get Divorced, Be Happy will show you that going it alone isn't the end, it is just the beginning, and you will come out the other side, stronger, happier and goddamn sassier than ever before.
