Olive by Emma Gannon
The debut novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author, Emma Gannon.
OLIVE is many things.
She knows her own mind.
And it's ok that she's still figuring it all out, navigating her world without a compass. But life comes with expectations, there are choices to be made and – sometimes – stereotypes to fulfil. So when her best friends' lives branch away towards marriage and motherhood, leaving the path they've always followed together, she starts to question her choices – because life according to Olive looks a little bit different.
Moving, memorable and a mirror for anyone at a crossroads, OLIVE has a little bit of all of us. Told with great warmth and nostalgia, this is a modern tale about the obstacle course of adulthood, milestone decisions and the ‘taboo' about choosing not to have children.
