Bad Habits (Paperback)Flynn Meaney (author)
- In stock
Spiky, irreverent and riotously funny, Meaney’s freewheeling story of a teen rebel attempting to stage a production of The Vagina Monologues in her strict Catholic boarding school tackles issues of feminism and free choice with a wonderful lightness of touch.
Hilarious, bold, sparky and surprising, this is the funniest feminist book you'll read all year.
Alex is a rebel with a purple fauxhawk and biker boots.
St Mary's Catholic School is a 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.
Fed up with life inside the hallowed halls of St. Mary's, Alex decides to take matters into her own hands. She's going to stage the school's first ever production of The Vagina Monologues.
Which may be a challenge, as 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, for fans of Holly Bourne, Derry Girls and Sex Education.

This snarky feminist treat is properly laugh-out-loud funny -- The Bookseller
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 -- Beth Garrod
