Babushka, Paperback / softback Book

Babushka Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'A little babushka is made when you're young and something happens to you that leaves a scar...'Cerys Williams has swapped her village in the Welsh Valleys for art college in London and the spare room in glamorous Auntie Wyn's flat.

Cerys knows there's more out there for her in the world; it's the year 2000 - she definitely doesn't have to just get married and have babies and wear beige and cook stews for the rest of her life, even if Mam thinks she should.

But Cerys's London is not glossy or cool or sophisticated, despite what Adept, her favourite magazine, has told her.

It's lonely and overwhelming and confusing. Until, that is, she meets him... The prequel to Toxic. A coming-of-age novel about love - the love you think you know and the love you never realised you had, all along. Praise for Toxic:'A hugely accomplished debut. Menacing, heartfelt and often very funny.' Juno Dawson'Such an exciting new author of YA fiction.' Holly Bourne'An astute and pin sharp exploration of the joy, pain and toxicity of teen female friendship.

So real it hurts.' Sara Barnard
