BOOK REVIEW: JEAN HANNAH EDELSTEIN – THIS REALLY ISN’T ABOUT YOU

I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages. I asked for it for Christmas but my partner Ryan forgot but I had two gift cards for Waterstones so I grabbed a copy straight away. This is a beautiful book. It’s probably one of the best memoirs I’ve read.
