    Author Information
    Lisa Jewell is in her thirties and was born and raised in north London, where she lives with her husband and their baby girl Amelie Mae. She worked as a secretary before redundancy, a bet and a book deal took her away from all that. She is the author of four huge bestsellers: Ralph's Party, Thirtynothing, One-Hit Wonder, Friend of the Family and most recently Vince & Joy.
    Review text
    Set in a house of converted flats in London, this is thirty-something light reading with real heart and depth. A new girl moves into the basement flat, coming between old friends. The happy couple in the middle flat are also divided, and the It Girl upstairs is at least partly to blame. The residents' wildly different lives all cross in unexpected ways, throwing up sparks whenever they do. The party where they are finally all gathered in one room is absolutely explosive, a pay off of all the storylines that have played up to this point. Jewell has produced a gem of a story, with genuinely original and credible characters, who all have valid, interesting social observations to make. These neighbours will be with you long after the party is over. (Kirkus UK)
