Caitlan's life is not how she planned. Her health obsessed hubbie is more organic than orgasmic, her eight year old daughter wishes her mum was Britney Spears and her four year old son Frankie wants to be known as Daphne. On discovering her diary from 1984 Caitlan begins wondering what would have happened had she followed a different path and was still with her first love.



As we dip in and out of the eighties via diary entries and memories we discover what changed Caitlan from fun loving teen to hard nosed cynic. Caitlan is also forced to confront her past and we are finally able to find the answer to the eternal question of 'what if?'

Review:

Uproarious tale of a group of women who refuse to come second to the beautiful game is a sassy, modern tale of football widows getting their revenge (Cosmopolitan on SWEET FA)

A tale with learning, coping, changing and making a stand very much at its centre. It's good (The Bookseller on SWEET FA)

From the Author:

As I've grown older I've been struck by how many people seem to be hostage to a previous relationship or hurt and haunted by the question 'what if?' In Frnakie Says Relapse I wanted to capture the raw intensity of a young girl's first love and see how, over the years it has become a curse, blighting any chance of future happiness. I also wanted to demonstrate how a combination of fear and tragic misunderstanding can drastically alter the course of a person's life. By using the diary of the teenage Caitlin as a flashback technique I wanted to give the reader the pieces of the jigsaw one by one so that they could work out for themselves how a fun-loving romantic ended up quite so cynical. I also wanted to leave them with a twist that neither they nor the adult Caitlin could possibly forsee. I hope it works!
