By the end of the book I was in tears. There is something small, yet profound in this text. The characters are vibrant, yes; over time you feel for them, yes; beyond that, beyond the glitter and champagne there's a genuine understanding of what it's like to be alive today.
There's a loneliness the book gets at from the start, that thing attracting both Cleo and Frank to one another; being lost and in love. I found something to love about all of the characters, and what I enjoyed most about them is they're not great people, but they're redeemable, and by the end most of them are. ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
