The Flip Side

The Flip Side


Brought to you by Penguin


It's New Year's Eve and Josh has a high-flying proposal planned.

An exclusive pod on the London Eye, with champagne, truffles and the ring.

It's perfect.

Until she says no.

And they have to spend the next 29 excruciating minutes alone together.

By the time Josh is back on the ground, his whole life is up in the air.

He's managed to lose his girlfriend, his job and his flat.

Realising he can't trust his own judgement, Josh puts his faith in fate.

From now on he will make every choice by flipping a coin.

It's reckless and scary, but Josh has tried the right way and look where he ended up.

And what if the girl of his dreams is just one flip of a coin away?
