‘Loved this!… I’ll be buying a copy for my BFF for sure… Hilarious, propulsive and very satisfying’ &#11088 &#11088 &#11088 &#11088 &#11088

Do you ever feel like you have no idea what you’re doing in life – and wonder if you just didn’t get the memo?

Jenny Green is dreading her Class of 2007 reunion. While her friends are killing it, Jenny’s promising career as an artisanal baker went up in flames (literally) and her deadbeat, commitment-phobe boyfriend is cheating on her with their swishy-ponytailed neighbour. She feels like she didn’t get the memo… As it turns out, she didn’t.

Begrudgingly back at university, she receives a text from an unlisted number: Jenny Green – please collect your memo. Hidden on her old campus is a secret female-led organisation providing memos to select students; blueprints for success.

The first time around, Jenny didn’t receive hers. Now she’s being given a second chance – the opportunity to rewrite her past, undo her worst mistakes and fix her mess of a life. But at what price?

A hilarious, achingly relatable, bittersweet and addictive page-turner about lifelong friendships, new loves, second chances and what it really means to live your best life. The Memo will enchant fans of Dolly Alderton’s Ghosts and Rebecca Serle’s In Five Years.
