Zoe West

It is the most beautiful, uplifting book. It is as tender and emotional as it is laugh out loud funny, and I loved Noah, with all his imperfections and his struggles, from page one. He has such a brilliant voice.

Cressida McLaughlin, bestselling author

Within a few pages I was totally invested in Noah and his relationships. I laughed with him, cried for him and cheered him every step of the way. Rachel Marks packs a novel with all the emotions - hope, fear, love, despair and - ultimately - joy.

Clare Pooley, author of The Authenticity Project

A delightful, heart-warming read - a reminder that we all get a second act in life. These are characters that feel so real, I'm sure I must know them somehow!
