9780140279283: Thirtynothing

Ever wondered what happened to your first love?

Imagine bumping into them twelve years later and realizing you still fancy them rotten. That's exactly what happens to Dig Ryan when he sees Delilah again.

Now imagine you're Nadine. You and Dig have been best friends for fifteen years. And you've finally realized that you're in love with him. So when Delilah - who always was your nemesis - returns, you're mad with jealousy and can't help behaving childishly. Like phoning your first love Phil - just to get your own back ...

Thirty-Nothing is a story of ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends and friends dabbling with yesterday when they really should be thinking about today.

Review:

"What did you do with the rabbit?" Not a surefire line to seduce a woman perhaps but when Dig Ryan bumps into his first love after a 12-year gap he just can't help himself. Instead of winning her back with his wit and whispered sweet nothings, Dig finds himself faced with an affliction he didn't know he had--he says completely the wrong thing at completely the wrong time. Often. But his ex, the delicious Delilah, seems as keen as he is and it looks like Dig is about to put the something into his thirty-nothing life.

So where does that leave Nadine--Dig's best friend since school? Instead of being thrilled that Dig is settling down, the reunion unlocks her insecurities and she regresses into the "big ginger gooseberry" she was as a teenager. She realises--just when it's too late--that she's in love with him, that she's always been in love with him. And, to make matters worse, she thinks she just might feel better if she gets back in touch with her ex (who Dig reckons is the Antichrist). The result is irresistible; an immensely enjoyable read that will guzzle up the hours and more than delight.

Thirty-nothing is Lisa Jewell's second novel, hot on the heels of Ralph's Party, which sold more than 200,000 copies and was the UK's top-selling debut novel of 1999. Lisa, who is currently writing her third novel, has also contributed a short story to the War Child anthology Girl's Night In, alongside Amy Jenkins, Marian Keyes and Freya North. Her Web site (www.lisa-jewell.co.uk) has a great guide to writing and getting published, plus a quirky list of Lisa's favourite novels and further information about her work. --Jane Honey

Review:

"Jewell writes with invigorating zest and lashings of what the shrinks might call emotional intelligence - pop fiction at its proudest." -- The Independent
