'I found myself laughing out loud at Susan's prickly character' Reese Witherspoon
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | SHORTLISTED FOR THE BEST FIRST NOVEL AWARD | A RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK

People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green.
Family and colleagues find her prickly and hard to understand - but Susan makes perfect sense to herself. Age 45, she thinks her life is perfect. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a steady job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits.

Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control. And things can only get worse ... at least in Susan's eyes.

This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom.

An ideal read for fans of Eleanor Oliphant, Bridget Jones and Maggie's Plan.
'Quirky, poignant and extremely readable'

Not likable

Characters not likable at all. And it wasn’t funny. There was absolutely no chemistry between the main character and her romantic interest.

Disappointing

This book was such a disappointment! Since when does being rude considered funny? Her past does not excuse her awful behaviour! This book is not worth purchasing and spending time on.
