Editorial Reviews

Review

Julie Frayn writes an awesomely cool book called Goody One Shoe thatreads like part fiction and part memoir. Being bullied isn't somethingmost us supermodels could relate to? Oh no. Never, but here thisinnocent third-grader hasn't forgotten those days when the embarrassment seemed never ending and continues on through adulthood due to the factthat she has a prosthetic leg. Billie, a proofreader working her waytowards freelance editing heaven. In life she finds she can't stopthinking of things that need editing like stories in the newspaper. Notonly does she want to fix the typos, she manages to put a new spin onthe stories and changes the endings. She can't not seem to edit. Even in her everyday, ordinary life. She is always taking out her red pen forcorrections. It has moved onto her personal life as if there areconstant captions shivering from above. If only we could edit out thethings in our lives that we wish could be changed.

I loved thedaring way the author approaches this story. Full of surprises andsemi-sarcastic yet humorous moments. This is a smart achievement and Idevoured this story in a flash. Lured me in and held me by the palm ofits rubbery hands (is an iPad made of rubber?) well you get what I mean. Had a hard time putting this unpredictable adventure down. It's notall laughs, as there are some grave parts, but it's those dark bits that gives it its legs. Could appreciate the authors sensibilities andenjoyed her unusual style that had me guessing all the way through.

Goody One Shoe is a good one and I am so pleased I found a tweet with the link or I would have surely missed out.

About the Author

Bean counter by day, Julie Frayn spends her off hours penning award-winning novels and short stories that pack a punch. And a few stabs. When not working or writing, Julie spend as much time as possible with her babies. Well, they're grown adults now, but they still think she's cool. Right kids? Right? Hello?

In grade school, Julie was a math whiz, loved to write stories and poems in English class, and had an artistic flair for pencil drawings and pen and ink pointillism. When it came time to choose a career, she was torn between three loves. Her artistic brain ached to create. But her practical side, and the need to eat, won out. Though she's devoted her career to numbers, she revels in the written word.
