From a dazzling new talent in women’s fiction, comes a swimmingly beautiful love story with a little twist in the tail.
If you couldn’t get enough of the smash-hits Me Before You and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, then Very Nearly Normal is set to be your new obsession. Effie’s not perfect. Neither is Theo. But together, they’re pretty close. Matilda ‘Effie’ Heaton has always felt like she’s swimming against the tide. Everyone around her has life sorted, but Effie’s living with her parents and crying into a wine bottle at night. The only thing she loves is her job at a bookshop, where she can lose herself in other people’s stories. But then she meets Theo, who knows only too well that life isn’t something to take for granted. Because Theo has a life-changing secret, and as Effie starts to realise that she’s falling in love instead of falling apart, fate steps in and deals her a new hand. And this time, the stakes are high. A swimmingly beautiful love story with a little twist in the tail that fans of Jojo Moyes and Gail Honeyman will adore.
