From the prize-winning author of Tony Hogan Bought Me An Ice-Cream Float Before He Stole My Ma

Winner of the Prix Femina Etranger


London, in the frayed heat of summer. Alena is shoplifting shoes when Dave catches her in the act and so begins an unlikely relationship between two people with little in common and everything to lose.


But the past is a dark place. And both of them have secrets they've no idea how to live with - or leave behind. Yet still they find themselves fighting with all they've got for a future together. But is love enough?
