ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780091949013
How to Build a Girl is a 2014 coming-of-age novel by English author and journalist Caitlin Moran, published by Ebury Press.
The novel is semi-autobiographical, with protagonist Johanna Morrigan having a similar upbringing to Moran with a large working-class family on a council estate in Wolverhampton.
My name's Johanna Morrigan. I'm fourteen, and I've just decided to kill myself.
I don't really want to die, of course! I just need to kill Johanna, and build a new girl. Dolly Wilde will be everything I want to be, and more!
But as with all the best coming-of-age stories, it doesn't exactly go to plan.

"Caitlin Moran's style makes the story flow with the wit and sarcasm of a young woman trying to escape the poverty and despair of family life on benefits in the 1990s. Sometimes I felt sympathy for Johanna, sometimes I laughed with her, and other times I cringed. All believable teenage stuff! As her life expands into the wider world, everything gets more outrageous and the sympathy, laughing and cringing multiply." - Google Review.
' . . . rowdy and fearless . . . sloppy, big-hearted and alive in all the right ways' - The New York Times.
'Laughing out loud is just the start' - Zoe Williams, The Guardian.
