Before Tom finds The One, he needs to find himself.
When Tom’s girlfriend walks out on him the day before Christmas, he feels humiliated but not necessarily heartbroken. Sadie wasn’t, after all, The One. If we’re being precise, she was number eighty-five.
Tom’s first mistake is sharing this information with his best friend El. His next mistake is listening when El suggests that he bring his eighty-five up to a nice, neat one hundred.
It was never going to be a good idea, not least because everything else in Tom’s life is in complete chaos. His best friend is dying of a slow and cruel disease, his teenage sister is at war with his well-meaning but dogmatic father, his elderly neighbour is having romantic problems (and makes a dreadful cup of tea), and he has to shoot four commercials with four children and a bad-tempered producer.
And then Tom meets Verity. Whether she’s The One remains to be seen, but she’s certainly more than just another number.
My Review: If you are looking for a light hearted, funny and enjoyable book then Girl 99 will certainly fit the criteria. With wonderful characters and amusing and sometimes cringe-worthy situations, we follow Tom on his quest to bed 100 women in a bet with his best friend.
Girl 99 is an entertaining look at romantic comedy from a male point of view which combines love, relationships, family, life and shagging as many women as possible.
