From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Claire – a model daughter, an imaginative teacher, as clear and legible as her handwriting.
Laura – a student, a beauty, as vital and rebellious as her parents could ever have feared for.
As children they had shared everything – so much so that later, neither sister could quite remember to which one of them some long-distant adventure had happened. Far from the leafy respectability of Harrow where they grew up, each is now going her distinctly separate way in this warm, funny and poignant coming-of-age novel.
"Assured and successful…Altogether a most satisfying and intelligent first novel"
"The happiest, saddest, funniest, most perceptive truth about growing up since The Catcher in the Rye"
"Sensitive and humorous"
"A delightful story of young love"
"It is thrilling to find a writer who could capture our world, and our emotions, so accurately"
