Low Expectations

Low Expectations

Georgie has a glamorous career in fashion.

Her boss doesn’t know her name, but working for a genius will pay off one day. She hopes.

She also has great friends.

Granted, they’re sometimes a bit superficial, but who wants to discuss a global crisis on a Friday night?

And she’s enjoying her single life.

Eighteen months of celibacy, and not a hot prospect in sight.

Perhaps life’s not quite what she was hoping for…

But how can she change it, and what does she really want? Stuck somewhere between a quarter-life crisis and self-fulfillment, Georgie is determined that this year, everything will be different. Armed only with her sense of humour, some black eyeliner and her best attempt at ‘charming’, she’s on the way. But just how long will the new improved Georgie last?

Low Expectations is a smart, raunchy, laugh-out-loud novel about what it means to be a ‘Real Woman’ today.

'Anyone looking for a funny holiday read, I recommend Low Expectations, which made me properly snort ... I loved it, really funny. Wish I'd known about it when I wrote about new literary bad girls for the Guardian earlier this year' Sarah Hughes, Guardian columnist.

'Couldn't put it down! Beautifully written and bloody hilarious at times' Laura Whitmore, MTV presenter.

'I could not put it down. It's laugh out loud funny, a little bit grubby in the best possible way, and just feels very real. All the chapters have headings like 'The Deformed Lovechild of Kurosawa's Subconscious' and 'Hamster Mouth More Lethal Than Listerine', accompanied by Aaron’s own illustrations, which I adored' Louise O'Neill, author of Only Ever Yours.
