A hilarious and heartwarming debut from a fresh voice in fiction: perfect for fans of The Rosie Project and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
Meet The Adults.
Claire and Matt are no longer together but decide what’s best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a ‘normal’ family Christmas. They can’t agree on whose idea it was, or who said they should bring their new partners. But someone did – and it’s too late to pull the plug.
Claire brings her new boyfriend Patrick (never Pat), a seemingly sensible, eligible from a distance, Iron-Man-in-Waiting.
Matt brings the new love of his life Alex, funny, smart, and extremely patient.
Scarlett, their daughter, brings her imaginary friend Posey. He’s a rabbit.
Together the five (or six?) of them grit their teeth over Forced Fun activities, drinking a little too much after bed-time, oversharing classified secrets about their pasts and, before you know it, their holiday is a powder keg that ends – where this story starts – with a tearful call to the police...
But what happened? They said they’d all be adults about this…
