Présentation de l'éditeur
In Storm in a C Cup, Caroline reveals the laughter and pain behind the TV persona, from a sheltered Norfolk childhood shared with her twin sister, through her madcap student days, to the challenging career ladder leading to eventual TV success, not forgetting its dark shadow, when intrusive media attention turned the dream into a nightmare. She takes us behind the cameras at some of TV's most successful reality shows, including the tensions, stresses and unlikely friendships of the three-month adventure that was Strictly. Caroline wears her heart on her sleeve, documenting her joys and heartbreaks with the humour, resilience and unflinching emotional honesty that have made her of one of television's most popular celebrities working in television today.

Thought it would be good to read about stuff other people go through and get out the other side unscathed and its not the end of the world.
Anyway she loved it and thanked me for buying her it after she read it.
Which was nice.
I wanted to like Caroline but it's such a bland book and sounds as though it's been written by a 15 year old.
It's a PG version of what could have been an honest coming of age story.
Very few, if any, of the characters (yes, I do know they're real people) are fully fleshed out and there is very little light and shade.
If someone is handsome she seems either a. Sure they'll fall in love but they don't and become great friends or b. She falls in love and they mess her around.
Friends are described in a cursory fashion and are all wonderful people. Everything is amazing but despite Flack saying how uncool she is I got the feeling that she's always been part of a popular crowd and this book lacked the witty self-deprecation I'd been hoping for.
I felt uncomfortable with the inclusion of the letters from Kips as it seemed as though a personality disorder or learning disability was involved. I understand that the missives demonstrate the level of intrusion and fear that can come the way of contemporary celebrities but this element could have been dealt with differently.
I felt that this autobiography was aimed at a lower age (I'm 3 Years younger than Flack) with, for example, the explanations of ceefax.
Mysteriously, all mention of money goes out of the window when her rent goes up and she's on more than a few hundred quid a job. It's swept under the carpet somewhat. I wish I could fund so many exotic breaks. Don't begrudge her the lifestyle but the book shifted from financial minutiae to throw away sections about annual Ibiza and festival trips which just didn't flow.
I'm sure fans and friends of Caroline will enjoy this. I think I'll just stick to watching her on telly and following her instagram.
