When the original cover for Stella Newman's debut novel, Pear Shaped, was released, I was less than impressed. It was bland and boring, but luckily the publishers have had a rethink, and have come up with something a little more fun and colourful, and I love it! The pink title stands out against the light blue background, and I just think it's so much nicer. It's out on 19th January 2012, and I can't wait to read it!
"Girl meets boy.
Girl loses boy.
Girl loses mind.
Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes. She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship. He’s clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life – to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down. Sophie’s instinct tells her James is too good to be true – and he is.
An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food. Pear-Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere."
