Life can be tricky when you're a girl in between relationships, careers and cities... and sometimes you have to face some uncomfortable truths. The sparkling debut from comic TV and radio presenter, Anna Daniels.
Lucy Crighton has just moved in with some gregarious housemates called Brian and Denise... who are her parents. She's also the proud mother of Glenda, her beloved 10-year-old... kelpie. And she has absolutely no interest in the dashing son of her parents' new next-door neighbour... well, maybe just a little...
As the girl in between relationships, careers and cities, Lucy is facing some awkward truths - like her mum's obsession with Cher, her father's unsolicited advice, and the probability there's more cash on the floor of her parents' car than in her own bank account.
Thank goodness for Lucy's crazy-but-wonderful best friend, Rosie, who's around to cushion reality with wild nights at the local Whipcrack Hotel, escapades in Japanese mud baths, and double dating under the Christmas lights in London.
But will Lucy work out what she really wants to do in life - and who she wants to share it with Girl in Between is a warm, funny, charmingly Australian story about life at the crossroads. Featuring an endearing and irrepressible cast of characters, it will have you chuckling from start to finish.
