Description

'Heartbreaking, funny and bittersweet. A phenomenal debut' DOLLY ALDERTON

'Let this bittersweet ode to siblings fill the Fleabag-shaped hole in your life' ELLE

'Fierce and unsparing, everything you'd expect from the brilliant Jessie Cave' EVANNA LYNCH

'Jessie Cave's reflective debut will make you laugh before breaking your heart' COSMOPOLITAN
___________

One summer can change everything . . . Ruth and Hannah are sisters. Bonded by love and friendship, they are perplexingly different characters.

Hannah is radiant, organised and hard working. Ruth is forever single and totally aimless. Together they are invincible.

Every summer they go on a budget holiday together where they bicker, laugh, fight and make up.

But this time is different. Something bad happens.

And now everything is changed forever.

This bittersweet love story is about needing someone else as much as they need you. It is an ode to our most powerful bonds, how they build us and break us, and how, when all seems lost, we can find joy in the most unexpected places.
