Ever feel like you're losing a race you never signed up for? Everyone in Amy's life seems to be getting married, having children and settling down (or so Instagram tells her), and she feels like she's falling behind. So, when her long-term boyfriend surprises her with a dream holiday, she thinks he's going to finally pop the Big Question. But the dream turns into a nightmare when, instead, she finds herself on the set of a Big Brother-style reality television show, The Shelf. Along with five other women, Amy is brutally dumped live on TV and must compete in a series of humiliating and obnoxious tasks in the hope of being crowned 'The Keeper'. While inside the house, will Amy learn that there are worse things than being 'left on the shelf'? ***Look out for Helly Acton's next novel, The Couple, out May 2021. Search 9781838773847***
ÄNTLIGEN *liiiiten spoiler* en chiclit som inte slutar med att huvudpersonen blir gravid. Halleluja! Jag älskade den här boken, det är en perfekt kombo av tramsighet och girl power utan att det blir för klyshigt. Väldigt kul idé med tv-programmet med! En kanonbok som jag rekommenderar alla som vill ha en rolig, lättläst och lite tankeväckande bok!
