A novel about friendship, hope and the power of pasta from the bestselling author of Pear Shaped.

According to a magazine, Susie is a `Leftover' - a post Bridget-Jones 30 something who has neither her dream man, job, nor home. She doesn't even own six matching dinner plates.

According to her friend Rebecca, Susie needs to get over her ex, Jake, start online dating - or at least stop being so rude to every guy who tries to chat her up.

But Susie's got a plan. If she can just make it the 307 days till her promotion and bonus, she can finally quit and pursue her dream career in food, then surely everything else will fall into place. If only her love life wasn't so complicated...

A sharp, witty and refreshing novel about love, friendship and enjoying what's left on the table.
