You're waiting for the postman - he's bringing your A level results. University, a career as a journalist - a glittering future lies ahead. But when the doorbell rings it's your old girlfriend; and she's carrying a baby. Your baby.
You're happy to look after it, just for an hour or two. But then she doesn't come back - and your future suddenly looks very different.
Malorie's dramatic new novel will take you on a journey from tears to laughter and back again.
