Get The Girls Out by Lucy Bloom

I met Lucy, very briefly, at the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival. Unable to resist her aura, I approached her. Her instant response was, “We look like we should be friends.”

Get The Girls Out was a birthday gift from my husband and consumed within a single reading. Lucy’s raw honesty draws you in and you experience the highs and lows with her. I ran the full gamut of emotions and I’m still reeling. How one tiny woman can squeeze so much living into one lifetime is genuinely inspirational.

The world is richer for Lucy’s vibrant presence. Her authenticity is a bright beacon in the current climate of murky fake celebrity.

I recommend this book to anyone who dares to become their better self, and I look forward to a future where everyone strives to be as “ordinary” as The Lucy Bloom.
