Your Own Kind of Girl by Clare Bowditch – Book Review

I’ve loved Clare Bowditch’s music for quite some time, and I’ve enjoyed the live shows that she and Jamilla Rizvi have done, so during this pandemic, Quarantine with Jam and Clare was a delightful community supporting each other during lockdowns and general pandemic awfulness. And while I’d been meaning to get this memoir for a while, I finally grabbed it.

From the early loss of her sister through a challenging time discovering her place in the world, both her and overseas, through physical and mental health issues, body image issues and eventually through all of this (in a manner of speaking), Clare is quite frank and honest with her reader. It’s hard, but definitely worth it, and quite inspiring at times.
