SOON TO BE A MAJOR TELEVISION SERIES STARRING GINA RODRIGUEZ

The funniest WTF AM I DOING?! novel of the year

A novel for any woman who wonders how the hell she got here, and why life isn't quite how she imagined it was going to be. And who is desperately trying to figure it all out when everyone around them is making gluten-free brownies.

Meet Nell.

Nell Stevens' life is a mess.

When her business goes bust and her relationship with it, Nell's happy ever after in California falls apart and she moves back to London to start over. But a lot has changed since she's been gone. All her single friends are now married with children, sky-high rents force her to rent a room in a stranger's house and in a world of perfect instagram lives, she feels like a f*ck up. Even worse, a forty-something f*ck-up.

But when an old work contact lands her a job writing obituaries, Nell meets the fabulous Cricket, an eighty-something widow, who is also adjusting to her new life and they strike up an unlikely friendship. Together they help each other heal their aching hearts, cope with the loss of the lives they had planned, and push each other into new adventures and unexpected joys.

Because Nell is determined. She's going to completely turn her life around. This time next year things are going to be very different. First, though, she has a confession . . .

A book for anyone who's ever worried life isn't going to plan, Confessions of a Forty-Something by Alexandra Potter will make you laugh and it might even make you cry. But most importantly, it will remind you not to worry, because we're all in this together.
