'Astoundingly good. Brave, wickedly funny and profoundly affecting. Wow!' Miranda Dickinson

NetGalley reviewers are loving this feel-good, uplifting novel:

'WOW if this book doesn't make you cry then I'm pretty sure nothing will'

'I loved every single page . . . I haven't been able to stop thinking about since I finished it'

'You will need a lot of tissues, as it is funny, sad and touching and really shows the strength of human spirit'


A year can go quickly. Particularly when it's your last.

Adam had a good life: a job he enjoyed, a nice house, a loving partner and a bright six-year-old daughter. Then he cheated on his partner. Then she kicked him out of their home. And then he was given approximately twelve months to live.

Despite the devastating news, Adam is determined to turn his life around before it finally runs out. Help comes in the form of an ex-junky, a cantankerous train driver, a nun experiencing a crisis of faith, and a teenager intent on losing her virginity - all living on borrowed time, all desperate to feel alive before their time is up.

Andy Jones

In one form or another, Andy has always been a writer. At school, he passed notes in class and scribbled rude words on lampposts. At University, he wrote a PhD in biochemistry and forged tickets to various balls. And as an advertising copywriter, has written commercials for everything from baby food to booze. But it wasn't until he was well into his thirties that Andy stared writing fiction. If he could write a letter his younger self, it would urge him to stop messing about and get on with it.
Andy lives in London with his wife and two little girls. Chances are, he's writing something.
