Everybody Hurts

By Joanna Nadin and Anthony McGowan

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

The first co-authored YA by much-loved authors Joanna Nadin and Anthony McGowan. Everybody Hurts is what The Fault in Our Stars might have looked like if it had all started in a hospital canteen in Leeds . . .

MORE HOPE. MORE HEART . . . MORE FOOL YOU.

Matt and Sophia live in the same city, but they come from opposite sides of the track. By rights they should never have met. They definitely should never have fallen in love at first sight, of all cliches.

But, to their great surprise, they do. That's the easy part. It's what to do next that they struggle with.

Friends, family and circumstance are mostly against them. They betray themselves; then they betray each other. And in the end they learn, the hard way, what it takes for love to survive.

It's true what they say. Everybody hurts sometimes. But sometimes, too, the pain is worth it.

'Dazzling!' Kelly LinkMorgan Stone was born with a hole in her middle. A perfectly smooth patch of nothing where a something should be. After seventeen years of fear and shame, doctors and nurses, 'peculiar' not 'perfect', she has had enough of hiding. One night, among a sea of bodies and lost in a moment of blissful abandon, she finally bares all. A few photos uploaded to social media is all it takes to create a media frenzy. Overnight, Morgan becomes #holegirl. And then she meets a boy who is literally her perfect match. They could be each other's cure. But can he truly make her 'whole'? Feisty, feminist and downright different, Hole in the Middle is the story of what happens when a girl who is anything but 'normal' confronts a world obsessed with body image and celebrity. 'Kendra Fortmeyer's debut is more heart than holes, creatively brilliant, wacky and wise. An author to watch!'
