...And a Happy New Year?

The Spinster Club
...And a Happy New Year?

Same bench. Same view. Same girls. And yet totally different girls.

Evie, Amber and Lottie are having a New Year party to remember!

For the first time since leaving college, all three girls are back together. It’s time for fun and flirting, snogs and shots. (And not tears and tantrums and horrible secrets.)

Because everything’s going right for these girls – Spinster Club for ever! Right?

“Bourne vividly evokes the rollercoaster sorrows and joys of teen friendship in a characteristically mordant, funny and moving novella.”
The Guardian
“The perfect wrap up to the Spinster Club series... Smart, authentic, funny, and heartfelt.”

Press reviews

Ultimately empowering.
The Irish Times
This could be either a perfect introduction to Bourne's trademark feminist writing style, or a great addition to any Spinster Club fan's collection. It rings true, is suitable for mature readers and full of strong female characters.
The Scotsman
Another winner for teenage girls... honest, comic and compelling.
The Daily Express
Packed with laugh-out-loud moments, tough truths and surprising revelations.
Country Life
This is the perfect wrap up to the Spinster Club series... It's smart, authentic, funny, and heartfelt - and while it doesn't shy away from the hard bits about growing up and moving away from home, it is also a reassuring reminder of the true and lasting power of friendship.
