Sunday Times-bestseller Tara er TV-producer, singlemor og på jagt efter kærligheden. Eller i hvert fald en mand, der kan overbevise hende om at give den en chance. En aften tager hun på date – en date, der ikke går helt som planlagt. Dagen efter er hun en internetsensation, da en video af hende er gået viralt. Cam er en supersuccesfuld livsstilsblogger, der er mest til korte forhold, der ikke kræver, at hun forpligter sig eller giver køb på det liv, hun har bygget op og elsker. Da hun læser om Tara, opfordrer hun i et blogindlæg sine læsere til at stoppe heksejagten på hende. Da Tara svarer hende, begynder de to kvinder, der aldrig har mødt hinanden, at skrive sammen, og et uventet venskab springer frem. Et andet sted i byen planlægger Stella, hvis kæreste netop har slået op med hende, at forføre sin chef for at opnå det, hun ønsker sig allermest i verden: at blive mor. Men han har netop været på date med en interessant kvinde, der arbejder med TV og er mor til en lille datter, og nu er han forelsket… De tre kvinders liv flettes sammen i en bog om kærlighed, sorg og venskab og modet til at leve på ens egne præmisser.

A poignant, often laugh-out-loud funny and unforgettable snapshot of small-town adolescence and the heart-stopping power of female friendship for fans of Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham.I just can't imagine me without you...It's the mid-1990s, and fifteen year-old Guernsey schoolgirls, Renee and Flo, are not really meant to be friends. Thoughtful, introspective and studious Flo couldn't be more different to ambitious, extroverted and sexually curious Renee. But Renee and Flo are united by loneliness and their dysfunctional families, and an intense bond is formed. Although there are obstacles to their friendship (namely Flo's jealous ex-best friend and Renee's growing infatuation with Flo's brother), fifteen is an age where anything can happen, where life stretches out before you, and when every betrayal feels like the end of the world. For Renee and Flo it is the time of their lives.-----'A really gorgeous and nostalgic read' Marie Claire'As brilliant as you would expect . . . Funny, sad and incredibly poignant' Stylist'Funny and touching . . . a must for anyone who has experienced the joy - and pain - of teenage friendship' Grazia'She has nailed every high school girl's defining moments' Jo Elvin, editor, Glamour
Best friends Renee and Flo have been inseparable for years. But now, as high school graduation looms, the girls' rock-solid friendship is beginning to show cracks. Flo has her heart set on going to university, with Renee right by her side, but all Renee wants is to stop going to school as soon as possible. To distract themselves from the inevitable and frightening future, Renee gets swept up in a romance with an older man, while Flo starts attending a church group. With such different paths and views on life, the girls start to worry that it isn't just high school that's endingbut also their friendship. Told through alternating perspectives in a gritty, poignant, and hilarious voice, Goose will appeal to fans of Rainbow Rowell, Louise Rennison, and Lauren Myracle.
Renee and Flo are the most unlikely of friends. Introspective and studious Flo and outspoken, wild, and sexually curious Renee have barely spoken in their years of going to school together in Guernsey, a small British island off the coast of France. And yet, when tragedy strikes, it is only wild child Renee, who lost her mother at a young age, who is able to comfort a grieving Flo. The girls form an intense bond that sees them through a host of deeply relatable, wince-inducing experiencesdrunken snogging; a seance in which clueless friends offer to summon Renee's mother; dating a guy for free fish and chips. But toxic mean girls and personal betrayals threaten to tear the girls' delicate new friendship apart. In this gripping debut, Dawn O'Porter shines an unflinchingly honest, humorous light on female friendship, lost innocence, and that moment when you are teetering on the threshold of adult life.Praise for Paper Airplanes Dawn OPorter was a teenager in her past life.

The angst and anguish of adolescence are made safer by her talented hand. Wish she had written this when I was 15! --Jamie Lee Curtis Poignant and edgy, this exploration of lively female friendships rises high. --Kirkus Reviews

The follow-up to the number one bestseller PAPER AEROPLANESIt's a year and a half on from PAPER AEROPLANES, and Renee is now living idyllically with her Auntie Jo. They even have geese, and Renee likes to sit and watch them, wondering if she'll ever find 'the One' - someone who will love her no matter what, and be there for her no matter how bad things get. She and Flo are in their final year at school, and they've got some tough choices to make - like will they go to university? And if so where - and will they go together? Renee's usual ambivalence on the matter shocks Flo, who had assumed they'd continue as they were, the best and closest of friends, forever. She feels as though she needs Renee's support more than ever, so when a handsome young boy enters Flo's life, she finds herself powerfully drawn to his kindness, and his faith. Renee and Flo's friendship will soon be tested in a way neither of them could have expected - and if PAPER AEROPLANES was a book about finding friendship, GOOSE is the novel that explores whether it's possible to keep hold of it.
