Alfie Bell is . . . fine. He's got a six-figure salary, a penthouse in Canary Wharf, the car he swore he'd buy when he was eighteen, and a bunch of fancy London friends.

It's rough, though, going back to South Shields now that they all know he's a fully paid-up pansy. It's the last place he's expecting to pull. But Fen's gorgeous, with his pink-tipped hair and hipster glasses, full of the sort of courage Alfie's never had. It should be a one-night thing, but Alfie hasn't met anyone like Fen before.

Except he has. At school, when Alfie was everything he was supposed to be, and Fen was the stubborn little gay boy who wouldn't keep his head down. And now it's a proper mess: Fen might have slept with Alfie, but he'll probably never forgive him, and Fen's got all this other stuff going on anyway, with his mam and her flower shop and the life he left down south.

Alfie just wants to make it right. But how can he, when all they've got in common is the nowhere town they both ran away from.

Contains mature themes.

Alexis Hall is the author of numerous novels, including The Affair of the Mysterious Letter, the Arden St. Ives series, and the Spires series.

Cornell Collins was a hippie, a mod, a punk, a new-romantic, and a new-waver. Now, he proudly calls himself "newly middle aged." Considering life to have been better in the 70s and 80s, he finds his cell phone too big and heavy and wants to smash the TV (much as a rock star in the 70s would have), except TVs don't explode anymore when you do that . . . and they're a whole lot more expensive to replace. Narrating audiobooks has shown Cornell that life in the modern world can, in some ways, be just as good, and he has found a peace in telling stories. His life partner (children of the 70s don't get "married") and daughter are very patient and much cleverer than he is.
