It is 1982 and Thatcher is in Downing Street, Human League is in the charts and Dallas is on the telly.

But the girls of Albacore Street are too busy to notice. For Stella, Bridget, Vinnie, Maxine and Nell, life revolves around demos, parties and no-strings sex. Against a background of Greenham Common and the Miner’s Strike, however, they are about to learn that life is not quite as simple as they thought.

Twenty years on and they are juggling like mad, but dropping all the balls. Their partners are straying, their daughters want plastic surgery, and their careers have stalled. Living increasingly separate lives, the tie that binds them grows thinner, until tragedy brings them back together, giving them a chance to refocus themselves on their friendship, their misdirected lives, and their survival.


“A different, clever and pacy read. This is high-end chick lit at its best and I loved it.”
