‘A thought-provoking, lovely tale that will make you laugh and cry.’ The Sun

This is my (Kevin Bates) manual for my daughter Lois. The love of my life.
Rules of the manual:
1.You must only read each new entry on your birthday
2.This is a private manual between you and me.
3.No peeping at the next entry unless it's your birthday!

When Lois Bates is handed the manual, she can barely bring herself to read it as the pain of her dad’s death is still so raw.Yet soon Kevin’s advice is guiding her through every stage of her life – from jobs to first loves and relationships.

The manual can never be a substitute for having her dad back, but through his words Lois learns to start living again, and finds that happiness is waiting round the corner …

Review:

‘A lovely, exuberant tearjerker of a book, perfect for curling up with on a wet afternoon’ Lisa Jewell

‘A stunning debut’ Pride

‘A thought-provoking, lovely tale that will make you laugh and cry.’ The Sun

‘This is a heartwarming tale of the power of father-daughter love’ Prima

From the Author:

Before you read this, I'd like to tell you a bit about the book I've written. Firstly though, I need to ask you a question: what would you do if you only had 6 months left to live? It's a BIG question I know! Well in my novel, Kevin Bates decides that he is going to write a manual for his daughter Lois - something she can live by, laugh at and follow right up until she is thirty years old. I like to think that it's sad, funny and very real. BY THE TIME YOU READ THIS is my first book and I really hope you enjoy it. Lola x
