Growing Up Twice by Rowan Coleman

Book Description

Jenny, Rosie and Selin have been best friends since school. Their teenage years were spent drinking too much wine in the park, dressing up for Friday night, and making the wrong choices with the wrong men because tomorrow seemed a very long way off. Eleven riotous years later, Jenny realises something. After more than a decade of waiting for her real life to begin, nothing has really changed. Here she is, still hung-over in the park, still dressed up in Friday night clothes and about to make her most inappropriate choice of man yet . But Jenny's not the only one waiting for real life to begin. And when tragedy turns their world upside down, all three friends are forced to realise that the real growing up is still to come...

"From the author of The Day We Met ("As with Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, I couldn't put this book down."--Katie Fforde) comes a beautiful, life-affirming novel that sparkles with love and wonder.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Friends since school, Jenny, Rosie and Selin enjoyed a riotous adolescence of nights out with the girls, too much wine and too often the wrong choice of men. Now it's 11 years later and Jenny is realizing she hasn't moved on very much: a dead-end job, time served in an abusive relationship and now out with the girls again. When she gives in to her feelings for the innocent 18-year-old Michael, Jenny knows that she is really going to have to grow up properly sometime very soon. This is a confident debut novel from Rowan Coleman, who accurately captures the warmth and the bitchiness that comes with long-term girly friendships and portrays each of her characters with wit and compassion. The dialogue rings true and it's easy to emphathize with the friends. Each has some life-changing decisions to make, but it's not all angst, and most memorable is the author's ability to portray sincerely both the optimism of youth and the anguish of unfulfilled promise. There is sex, tragedy and violence in the book but a warm glow can be looked forward to at the end. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Rowan Coleman

Rowan Coleman lives with her husband, and five children in a very full house in Hertfordshire. She juggles writing novels with raising her family which includes a very lively set of toddler twins whose main hobby is going in the opposite directions. When she gets the chance, Rowan enjoys sleeping, sitting and loves watching films; she is also attempting to learn how to bake. Rowan would like to live every day as if she were starring in a musical, although her daughter no longer allows her to sing in public. Despite being dyslexic, Rowan loves writing, and The Memory Book is her eleventh novel. Others include The Accidental Mother, Lessons in Laughing Out Loud and the award-winning Runaway Wife, a novel which lead Rowan to become an active supporter of domestic abuse charity Refuge, donating 100% of royalties from the ebook publication of her novella, Woman Walks Into a Bar, to the charity. Rowan does not have time for ironing. To find out more about Rowan Coleman, visit her website at: www.rowancoleman.co.uk, Facebook or Twitter: @rowancoleman.
