Square One

A brilliantly bold and sharply funny debut for 2022




The brilliantly funny and relatable debut novel from the author of The Panic Years.

How is she supposed to keep up when she's back to square one?

At thirty-two, Hanna Markham is new single just as all her friends are becoming proper adults, getting married and having babies - and unable to afford to live on her own, she's left with just one choice: to move in with her dad.

She's sleeping beneath her old Jungle Book (single) duvet, eating off square black plates (surely owned solely by single men with no taste) and dealing with the (seemingly never-ending) irritating habits of the man she last lived with fourteen years ago.

With wedding invitations and baby pictures coming at her thick and fast, Hanna is panicking about her own future. But what does she really want and how does she figure it all out when her dad has just announced he's just joined Tinder...?
