THE MUST-READ SUMMER 2020 RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK'If you wished Normal People had tackled female friendship, try Expectation' GRAZIA'Profoundly intelligent and humane. Deserves to feature on many a prize shortlist' GUARDIAN'A brilliant exploration of friendship, feminism and thwarted ambition' PANDORA SYKES

What happened to the women we were supposed to become?Hannah, Cate and Lissa are young, vibrant and inseparable. Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry - and the promise of everything to come.

They are electric. They are the best of friends. Ten years on, they are not where they hoped to be.

Amidst flailing careers and faltering marriages, each hungers for what the others have. And each wrestles with the same question: what does it take to lead a meaningful life? The most razor-sharp and heartbreaking novel of the year, EXPECTATION is a novel about finding your way: as a mother, a daughter, a wife, a rebel.
