About the book

A blisteringly sharp exploration of self-acceptance, friendship and making connections in the most unexpected of places.

****

'Sharp, sublime and achingly hopeful. Nothing Serious takes an honest and heartfelt look at loneliness and longing, friendship and survival. I loved it' CHRIS WHITAKER, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End

'This book blew me away, I'm still reeling from it . . . This is a powerful novel that will bring out a world of emotions in you . . . Just brilliant' ***** Reader Review

'A searing exploration into the shape of loneliness and how far we'll go to create connections'
HEATHER DARWENT, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Things We Do To Our Friends

****

Nicki - 30ish, care worker, living in Brighton - is scrolling for her next hook-up. A difficult home life, a job that's going nowhere, she seeks solace in random encounters.

Amber - 17, college student, lost - desperately needs someone to notice her.

She creates 'Kevin', a fake dating profile for a man in his thirties.

Neither Nicki nor 'Kevin' has any idea what they're about to get into.

They quickly match, and an unlikely friendship develops, giving each other the validation they both sorely need.

But can you ever truly connect when one of you is a liar?


***

'Emotive . . . a powerful tale of a skewed but hopeful friendship through which two very different women find the courage to survive' AMY BEASHEL, author of Spilt Milk

'WHAT. A. BOOK. I was utterly gripped from the first page. I loved Emma's characters, they felt real and balanced, flawed and relatable. One that people will be talking about long after they finish reading'
LISA HALL, author of Between You and Me
