Losing It


Formats & editions


A hilarious and thought-provoking novel by the award-winning author of Bye, Beautiful and The Push, Julia Lawrinson.

To avoid Losing It in the bushes with some random guy in a heavy-metal T-shirt after too many tequila shots, four best friends make a bet: to lose it before schoolies week – and preferably in a romantic, sober way that they won't regret.
What follows is a sometimes funny, sometimes awkward, but always compelling comedy of errors as Abby, Mala, Bree and Zoe each try to find their Mr Right . . . or at least get laid.
A hilarious and thought-provoking novel by the award-winning author of Bye, Beautiful and The Push.
