Brought to you by Penguin.

A blisteringly sharp exploration of self-acceptance, friendship and finding connection in the most unexpected places.

Nicki - 30ish, care worker living in Brighton - is scrolling for her next hook up. A difficult home life, a job that's going nowhere, she seeks solace in random encounters.

Amber - 17, college student, lost - desperately needs someone to notice her.
She creates 'Kevin', a fake dating profile for a man in his thirties.
Neither Nicki nor 'Kevin' has any idea what they're about to get into.

They quickly match, and an unlikely friendship develops, giving each other the validation they both sorely need.

But can you ever truly connect when one of you is a liar?

Reviews

Always emotionally intelligent and thought-provoking. Raw and compelling A searing exploration into the shape of loneliness and how far we'll go to create connections An emotive insight into the consequences of bruising loneliness, Nothing Serious is a powerful tale of a skewed but hopeful friendship through which two very different women find the courage to survive WHAT. A. BOOK. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it before, I was utterly gripped from the first page. I loved Emma's characters, they felt real and balanced, flawed and relatable. Such a perfectly relevant read, and one that I think people will be talking about/thinking over for a long time after they finish reading A thought-provoking, quietly devastating novel about loneliness and what people will do to belong Sharp, sublime, and achingly hopeful. Nothing Serious takes an honest and heartfelt look at loneliness and longing, friendship and survival. I loved it Magnetic, raw and powerful, this is a compulsive novel about loneliness and connection that will stay with me a long time Expand reviews
