In 2015, Rosie Waterland published her first book, a memoir called "The Anti-Cool Girl". The book is about her childhood, her growing up, and her becoming an adult; all with mentally ill, drug and alcohol addicted parents, child protection, foster care, caravans and couches. There were crazy and very difficult times but also some funny times too. Rosie is 30 now, her mum Lisa is now 53. Since the book came out, the one question Rosie is always asked is more than any other is, "Has your Mum read the book?"  Lisa hadn't read it for a while, because her drinking was so bad that she physically or emotionally couldn't. But in 2016, Lisa got sober. She has maintained that sobriety for the longest period Rosie has ever seen and.. she has finally read the book. She has many thoughts. The first of which is that most of Rosie's memoir is a lie.   Now is their time to talk all about it. In each episode Rosie reads a chapter from the book, and then Rosie and Lisa talk through it - is it all true or false? What really happened? Each chapter becomes a real conversation about the past, present and future for Rosie and Lisa.

2 episodes in and I'm already crying

Every since I inhaled Rosie's memoirs, I've been curious as to what the other members in her story thought of her account. As a child of an alcoholic, I know how memories can change & grow as time goes by and how there can be so many versions that are also true. Listening to Rosie read was amazing but to hear her mum crying in the 2nd episode.. jeez, the floodgates opened. Such a refreshing and original podcast.. love that Rosie Waterland keeps challenging the rules for storytelling and is actual an 'honest' voice in a sea of filtered honesty

Love 💗💗💗

You're amazing Rosie !!! Love you
