Meet Rachel Walsh.
She's been living it up in New York City, spending her nights talking her way into glamorous parties before heading home in the early hours to her adoring boyfriend, Luke.
But her sensible older sister showing up and sending her off to actual rehab wasn't quite part of her plan.
She's only agreed to her incarceration because she's heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, spa treatments and celebrities going cold turkey - plus it's about time she had a holiday.
Saying goodbye to fun and freedom will be hard - and losing the man who might just be the love of her life will be even harder.
But will hitting rock bottom help Rachel learn to love herself, at last?
Find out what's next for Rachel in the EXCLUSIVE EXTRACT from the deliciously dark and fantastically funny sequel Again, Rachel - AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW

From the Back Cover
Imagine you're Rachel.
Living in glamorous New York City, spending your nights at fabulous parties and heading home in the small hours to your sexy boyfriend Luke.
Then your sensible older sister shows up.
Next thing you know, you're being escorted back to your parents, who insist on checking you in to Cloisters, a kind of low rent Priory.
Suddenly you're in therapy sessions and being cured of all your addictions: the drugs, the high life and even Luke.
But you're young - can't you make a few mistakes?
Because you can't help worrying:
if they take all this away, what'll be left?

Her family are fantastic, they clearly love and care for her but don't hold back and still talk to her like they do to each other. Her sisters laugh at her for being a druggie but you know they are worried.
The heart breaking part is when she talks about Luke and her best friend. She's annoyed that they betray her by telling the therapist about her behavior. To Rachel, she just enjoyed a party but the truth is she did any party to take a substance even if it meant hurting her friends.
I liked the fact that the subject of addiction was handled really well and shows that you don't just step out of rehab 'fixed'. The fact that it took Rachel over two years to be able to like herself was nice and the ending is exactly what you want as a reader!
