Mix Tape : The most nostalgic and uplifting romance you'll read this year. 'Fantastic, moving, beautiful' Daily Mail Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'This grown-up love story is gorgeously written and romantic without being sentimental' Good Housekeeping'This tender tale of second chances... is a nostalgic delight' Sunday MirrorYou never forget the one that got away.

Daniel was the first boy to make Alison a mix tape. But that was years ago and Ali hasn't thought about him in a very long time.

Even if she had, she might not have called him 'the one that got away'; after all, she'd been the one to run. Then Dan's name pops up on her phone, with a link to a song from their shared past. For two blissful minutes, Alison is no longer an adult in Adelaide with temperamental daughters; she is sixteen in Sheffield, dancing in her skin-tight jeans.

She cannot help but respond in kind. And so begins a new mix tape. Ali and Dan exchange songs - some new, some old - across oceans and time zones, across a lifetime of different experiences, until one of them breaks the rules and sends a message that will change everything... __________Readers have fallen in love with Mix Tape!'I laughed, I cried, I listened to the music.
