For Grace, student life feels like the trailers to a film - she can't wait for 'real life' to begin, away from the constant hangovers, the pretentious student discussions, the horrors of the Shared Fridge, and, most of all, the incestuous, angst-filled love lives of her housemates. There is Finlay and his 'unromance' with Grace, Richard the public-school totty who's working his way round the house, Mandy smuggling a queue of men into her room, and Mabel and her Love Rat fiance. As they bicker, bitch and bed-hop their way towards graduation, it's doubtful they'll stay in touch, until, six years later, they're dragged to a house reunion. It's time to see how the real world has treated them...
'Addictive, and full of truth. Readers expecting a William Sutcliffe-style look at university life are sure to be surprised, but not disappointed.'
