Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Whatever became of the nice girl? In this rollicking novel, a nice girl named Babe lets her fantasies get the best of her. She breaks away from an office career to take up the bohemian life of an artist in a garret. Having neither the courage nor the money to move to the Left Bank in Paris, she does the best that she can in her hometown of York. Once she has found the right place, she looks for the right man to be her live-in model, and falls in with a motley band of local rebels. Set in the 1960's, this FREE e-Book shows the problems that a nice girl can have while trying to be an individualist. Download it today!

Why hasn't this book been published?It's funny, beautifully written, and Babe is a great character.

Nice book.... No one knows the troubles of a girl and never shows interest in knowing them... so this is better attempt by author.
