Description

Hannah is a confused fourteen-year-old. In the magazines she reads, celebrities plan elaborate weddings; in Hannah's own life, her parents' marriage is crumbling.

Over the next decade and a half, love throws her some complicated questions. At what point can you no longer blame your adult failures on your messed up childhood? Is settling for someone who's not your soulmate an act of maturity or an admission of defeat? And if you move to another state for a guy who might not love you back, are you being plucky - or just pathetic?

Review quote

"Sittenfeld is a clever and refreshing writer... Likeable and compelling... Witty and astute... The result is impressive but most of all enjoyable" * The Sunday Times * "Good-humoured, deeply engaging... Brilliant... Gratifying and elucidating" * Guardian * "Delightful... Entertaining and thought-provoking... Sittenfeld's cut-glass prose and razor-sharp observations take her work to another level" * Observer * "Funny and painfully true... Closing it for the last time, you feel like you're losing a new best friend" * Marie Claire * "Razor-sharp... Sittenfeld's prose, which has that elusive ability to seduce you without you ever noticing The writing, is a joy to read, and her characters a joy to spend time with" * Time Out *
