Waterstones Says

The much-loved broadcaster and author of Bigger Than Us and Speak Your Truth delivers her quirky and compassionate debut novel, in which put-upon Jade discovers a series of scripts enacting infuriating scenarios that are yet to happen.

Jade Shaw has lost control of her life.

Pushed around by her warring family, and taken for granted by a boyfriend who's more interested in his "brand" than their relationship, she knows that somewhere along the path to being an adult she's lost her way. And she can't seem to find it again.

The last place she expects to discover answers is on the floor outside her flat. But there it is: a script. Containing her name, and her boyfriend Adam's - and depicting another huge argument in which Jade fails to stand up for herself. The weird thing is: this argument hasn't happened yet.

The row becomes reality. Jade tries and fails to find her voice. Then more scripts appear, predicting infuriating scenarios in which Jade's boss, mum, and bridezilla sister walk all over her. Whoever is leaving these scripts knows Jade inside-out. But who is writing them? How are they able to predict her future so accurately?

And what can Jade do to re-write the script?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Just like Fearne Cotton herself, Scripted is life-affirming and deeply compassionate. But it’s also a cleverly conceived and funny novel which asks big questions about what it is to be the author of one’s own fate - Elizabeth Day

So smart, thoughtful and hope-filled. I loved it! - Daisy Buchanan

A great high concept novel . . . a smart and funny story about taking charge of your own life - Matt Haig

An impressive and thoroughly entertaining debut. All the ingredients for a great read are here: Scripted is fast paced and original, populated by a colourful cast yet delivering a thoughtful theme of finding one's feet and one's voice, of learning to say 'No' and standing up for oneself. Such as satisfying read, I really enjoyed it and would love to see what Jade (and Fearne) do next. - Freya North

Uplifting and heartfelt - Grazia

An i Best New Book for June - i

A gorgeous read about the power of saying no. I devoured it in one sitting! - Poorna Bell

An entertaining and impressive read - Bella

“Scripted”

I was drawn to this book cos I actually thought it was a fox on the cover (and now you can't un-see that), and we have just been blessed with our resident garden fox having 7 cubs. Maybe I need better glasses...... More
