Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best seller.

Jenny McLaine can’t afford her mortgage since her ex moved out, is about to get dumped by her best friend, spends all day online-stalking women with picture-perfect lives. 

And now her mother has appeared on her doorstep, unbidden, to save the day.... Is Jenny ready to grow up and rescue herself this time? Again.

What the critics say

"I loved it! Dazzling observations and snarky one-liners, with a heroine who is vulnerable, funny, intelligent and feels So real. I wish I'd written it!" (Marian Keyes)

‘Confronting, heartbreaking and hilarious - a timely parable for modern anxiety as well as a timeless examination of men, women, sex, desire, friendship, family and the female psyche...I completely and utterly adored it." (Dolly Alderton)

"So funny, arch and tender...A must-read For anyone who has ever wondered what it means to be a daughter, a friend or a mother, when sometimes you don't even know how to be yourself." (Jessie Burton)
