Is Gracie in love for the very first time?You know that bit in The X Factor, when the singer tells everyone about the rocky road they travelled to pursue their dream?

Well, that's Gracie Flowers' story.Gracie is very focused for a woman of almost twenty-six.

Her favourite book is 'The 5-Year Plan: Making the Most of Your Life'. And her five-year plan is going very well. That is, until she is usurped from her big promotion by a handsome, posh idiot; she is dumped by her boyfriend; and discovers her loopy mother is facing bankruptcy.Hormones awry and ice cream over-ordered, a dream Gracie thought she'd buried ten years ago starts to resurface.

A dream that reminds her of the girl she used to be and everything she wanted to become.

Review by

This is the first Lucy Anne Holmes I've read. I absolutely adore this book. It has the right amount of humor, romance and heartbreaking moment. I definitely couldn't put it down as I read along. A fun read.

Review by

a well written and entertaining account of how genetics control sex and the reproductive process, and where science and technology may be taking us. I didn't think I would like it, but found it fascinating and compelling.
