Ever feel like everyone but you has their life under control?

Isabella, Mary and Lauren feel like everyone they know has a plan, a good job, and a nice boyfriend.

Isabella, on the other hand, thinks she might hate her own boyfriend, Mary is working so hard she's hoping to get hit by a car just so she can have some time off work and Lauren is dating a man who can't spell her first name.

All three of them have been friends since college, and now - more than ever - they need each other, as they struggle through those thrilling, bewildering, what-on-earth-am-I-doing years when everyone else is getting married and they're just getting drunk.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A hit in America, this wry and witty novel will pull at your heartstrings as you watch the characters navigate through work crises, romance and their turbulent twenties * Stylist *
One of the funniest books I have read in ages...sharply and sparely written, it's a sort of absurdist Sex and the City, but the characters have much less money and are therefore much more real... Warm, witty and compassionate -- Wendy Holden * Daily Mail *
Brilliantly well observed and delivered with deliciously dry wit, this coming-of-age tale charting the fates and fortunes of a group of young New York women became a huge hit Stateside before its publication here. Close paints vividly true portraits of the hateful and wonderful complexities of careers, romance and friendships and the result is funny, insightful and piquant. You'll nod in agreement, laugh out loud and go out and buy copies for all your friends -- Beatrice Hodgkin * Easy Living *
Close's debut pulls you into the midst of Isabella, Mary and Lauren's social circle, reminding us that friendship is everything in life. A great first novel, it has a touch of hit TV show Girls about it, and is full of the 'What am I going to do with my life?' angst that we can all relate to * Glamour *
An irresistible, pitch-perfect first novel * Marie Claire *
