By Nicola Gill, Read by Eilidh Beaton

‘Poignant and wry up-lit at its finest – Nicola Gill is a talent to behold!’ LAURA JANE WILLIAMS, bestselling author of Our Stop

‘Warm and witty – I quickly grew to love the characters.’ BETH O’LEARY, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare and The Switch

You can’t choose your family…

Jess and Laura might be sisters, but they’re very different people. Laura is laid-back, eats cheese in bed, and takes life as it comes. Jess, meanwhile, is the classic overachiever: Chief of Chivvying, Queen of all WhatsApp groups. They’re family, but they’re not exactly friends.

…but you can let them in.

When their mum dies, the sisters struggle to agree on anything, from where to scatter the ashes to whether “passed away” is an acceptable term. But as life forces them together, Laura and Jess realise: the only way through this is as a team. After all, they’re stuck with each other – and drinking wine is more fun as a pair…

A funny, tender and thoroughly entertaining read for anyone who loved watching Fleabag, and is a fan of books by Marian Keyes, Fiona Gibson, Rachel Marks, Beth O’Leary and Mhairi McFarlane.
