‘I wonder if you can have a boyfriend and be a feminist. I might just google it.’ Kat doesn’t know much about feminism, but she does know it’s confusing – just like everything else in her life. Utterly hilarious and boldly honest, Kat tells it how it is – and it is INCREDIBLY embarrassing. Perfect for those who love Holly Bourne and Sex Education.

15-year-old Kat wants to do GOOD FEMINISM, although she’s not always sure what that means. She also wants to be a writer, get together with Hot Josh (is this a feminist ambition?), win at her coursework and not make a TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT of herself at all times.

But the path to true feminism is filled with mortifying incidents, muddling moments and Instagram hell. And it doesn’t help that Hot Josh is just, well, properly, distractingly hot.

And when everything at school starts to get a bit too much, Kat knows she’s lost her way, and the only way forward is to ask for help …

Bold, authentic and laugh-out-loud funny, Kat’s diary fearlessly navigates her way through life, love and teenage anxiety.

‘Holly Bourne fans should love this uproarious debut by standup comic Weston’ Guardian

‘This book will make you laugh out loud’ – Sunday Times Book of the Week


There are echoes of the late great Louise Rennison here, and we can only hope that future titles about this Confused Feminist...make their way on to the shelves. In these issue-heavy times, it's vital to keep some space for laughter
Irish Times
Holly Bourne fans should love this uproarious debut by standup comic Weston, which pinballs from period jokes to giant penises projected on the whiteboard as 15-year-old Kat attempts to figure out how to be a feminist, good or otherwise, and wonders whether she will ever feel like a grownup. Sensitive treatment of panic attacks, anxiety and depression gives depth to the (considerable) hilarity
The Guardian
Weston, a former stand-up comedian, chucks gags around like fireworks
