Product description

Review

‘This tale of four young women trying to sort out the dilemmas of motherhood … will bring relief and recognition to many. It’s a lovely book ― thoughtful, searching, funny, and (most importantly) honest’ Elizabeth Gilbert

‘Funny in parts, painful in others, thoughtful throughout, it explores many dilemmas, with characters who feel utterly real’ Sophie Kinsella

‘It'll give a voice to countless women . . . a profound issue wrapped inside an accessible, highly engaging novel’ Marian Keyes

‘Gutsy and refreshing’ HEAT

‘It's warm and charming and yet VERY brave in its honesty about having children and how that impacts female friendships. I suspect a lot of women will feel relieved and seen when they read it’ Holly Bourne

‘Important themes explored by a true champion of women’ Nina Stibbe

‘Thought provoking with a wonderfully relatable hero’ Good Housekeeping

‘So fresh and funny and utterly distinctive . . . I loved it’ Emma Jane Unsworth

‘A delicate, heartbreaking and delicious story that will bring a pang of delightful recognition to every woman who reads it’ Scarlett Curtis

‘A witty, tender portrayal of female friendship under pressure’ Mail on Sunday 

‘Honest, relatable, and incredibly real, Olive is going to resonate with an entire generation of young women’ Louise O’Neill

‘In Gannon’s capable hands, women are not so much divided along their disparate lines – but united’ Pandora Sykes

‘Cuts rights to the heart of conversations around women and the stereotypes we either adhere to – or reject’ Cosmopolitan

‘I raced through this brilliant, brilliant book, feeling more thoroughly seen than I have in years. Olive's story is big and bright and beautiful, and holds up a much-needed mirror to society’ Lucy Vine

‘Incredibly warm and loveable, you won’t be able to put Olive down’ Bustle
