HOW TO BE PERFECT

by Wainwright, Holly

While following on from certain characters in The Mummy Bloggers, this could easily work as a stand-alone novel. It packs the same satirical, biting punch that Holly employed in her first novel, with characters you love to hate and pointed examinations of fickle trends here, bug-bears include clean eating, yoga, YouTube channels, influencers, and always the ever-present umbrella of blogging and social media.

What did you have for breakfast? Was it pure enough? Did it set you up for a day of grace, positive intentions and bum-selfies that would make a teenager weep? If not, Elle Campbell is here to help. She once led an army of ab-tastic, aspirational mums, but after a blistering public shaming she's reinvented herself as a mountain-top model of serenity with a new band of followers the Elle-ness Warriors.

Abi Black is blogging about her chaotic blended family from her falling-down farmhouse, trying to keep it together while her ex-husband is building a financial cult in the shed and her teenage daughter's YouTube channel is gaining followers for all the wrong reasons.

Frances Graham has a colicky newborn, an absent husband and a Whatsapp Mother's Group that's giving her anxiety. But she's sure that if she can just be more like those fitmums on Instagram do one more boot camp, one more juice cleanse things can only get better.

Holly Wainwright is a former-Mancunian Sydneysider who came to Australia as a footloose traveller more than 20 years ago. Since then, Holly has had a long career as a journalist and editor, originally in travel and celebrity magazines and now online. She's been working in digital media for three years, most recently as Head of Entertainment at Mamamia. She also hosts a parenting podcast, has two small children, lives by the ocean and wishes there were four more hours in every day.
