by Alexandra Potter

Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up Synopsis

Nell Stevens' life is a mess. When her business goes bust and her fiance with it, Nell's happy ever after in California falls apart and she moves back to London to start over. But a lot has changed since she's been gone. All her single friends are now married with children, sky-high rents force her to rent a room in a stranger's 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 who's ever worried life isn't 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 we're all in this together. Time to fall in love with your life.

Confessions of a Forty-Something F**k Up Press Reviews

I loved this book so much. It's very funny and painfully true. Confessions of a Forty-Something F*ck Up is perfect comfort reading for anyone who thinks life isn't working out as they want it too, whether they're forty, fourteen or eighty-four. * Chrissie Manby * Nell's journey to mid-life happiness is hilarious, moving and filled with clear-eyed wisdom about what it means to be a woman of any age, proving that the best happy ever afters come when you fall in love with life. * Lucy Dillon * A funny, feisty tale about the highs and the oh-so-lows of having to start over in your forties with a smart, sassy character at its heart who you'll be cheering on from start to finish. * Mike Gayle *
