Square One

Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

'Electrifyingly good...sharply comic and perfectly poignant' Daisy Buchanan, author of Insatiable

-------------------
EVERYONE IS MOVING ON... AND THEN, THERE'S HANNA

BY THIRTY, HANNA EXPECTED TO HAVE IT ALL (OR AT LEAST SOME OF IT)

A fulfilling and successful career
A healthy, long-term relationship, maybe even an engagement ring
A house (or at least a flat) of her own

BUT IN REALITY, SHE'S BACK AT SQUARE ONE...
Single after breaking up with someone she's not sure ever loved her
Flooded with wedding invitations and pregnancy scan pictures from friends
Unable to afford to live on her own, moving in with her (also single and dating) father

Everyone moves at different paces, but Hanna's life is in reverse. With the pressure to keep up and her dad's insufferable musings on Tinder, will she be able to figure out what she really wants?
