Write Review

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Searing, poignant, insightful and achingly funny, Careless is an upmarket coming-of-age novel like no other, celebrating female friendship and the enduring hope to follow our dreams against all odds. Perfect for fans of Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams, Normal People by Sally Rooney and Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton.

Bess knows more than anyone that love doesn't come without conditions.

But this isn't a love story...
