The days are just massive
Daisy, Esther and Susan have reached their final year at university, and they are off to a rough start. McGraw has found a flat to share with Susan and she hates it.
Why? To be honest, the context doesn't really help.
Daisy is dealing with the fallout of Ingrid accidentally outing her to her grandmother, but may have found her calling as a mentor to younger students. She also coaxes Esther to come to the campus job fair where the two of them employ very different approaches to seeking a suitable career.
Esther still feels guilty about the night on the town that left Ed with broken bones and a broken heart, not to mention for condemning him to live in a room that wouldn't be out of place in a medieval monastery, but she finds a way to make it up to him.
Ed misinterprets some advice.
This latest installment serves to sort out some of the issues that came up in the previous volume (living arrangements, relationship statuses etc.) and sets things up for the next volume. There a few laugh out loud moments, and some adorable Susan and McGraw scenes, which I am very much there for. The slightly panicky vibe of uni students getting towards the end of their degrees and having to get serious about what comes next was familiar and relatable. On to Volume 11!
