From the bestselling author of The Sun is Also a Star comes the heart-wrenching story of Evie who, thanks to an unusual gift she possesses, is increasingly disillusioned about love – until one day at the dance studio she meets someone who just might change her mind.
Evie is disillusioned about love ever since her dad left her mum for another woman - she's even throwing out her beloved romance novel collection.
When she's given a copy of a book called Instructions for Dancing, and follows a note inside to a dilapidated dance studio, she discovers she has a strange and unwelcome gift. When a couple kisses in front of her, she can see their whole relationship play out - from the moment they first catch each other's eye to the last bitter moments of their break-up.
For Evie, it confirms everything she thinks she knows about love - that it doesn't last.
But at the dance studio she meets X - tall, dreadlocked, fascinating - and they start to learn to dance, together. Can X help break the spell that Evie is under? Can he change Evie's mind about love?
