Nell Stevensï¿½ life is a mess.
When her business goes bust and her fiancï¿½ with it, Nellï¿½s happy ever after in California falls apart and she moves back to London to start over. But a lot has changed since sheï¿½s been gone. All her single friends are now married with children, sky-high rents force her to rent a room in a strangerï¿½s house and in a world of perfect instagram lives, she feels like a f*ck up. Even worse, a forty-something f*ck-up.
But when she lands a job writing obituaries, Nell meets the fabulous Cricket, an eighty-something widow with challenges of her own, and they strike up an unlikely friendship. Together they begin to help each other heal their aching hearts, cope with the loss of the lives they had planned, and push each other into new adventures and unexpected joys.
Because Nell is determined. Next year things are going to be very different. It's time to turn her life around.
A book for anyone whoï¿½s ever worried life isnï¿½t going to plan, Confessions of a Forty-Something F##k Up by Alexandra Potter will make you laugh and it might even make you cry. But most importantly, it will remind you that you're not alone, because weï¿½re all in this together.
Time to fall in love with your life.
