Sometimes it's easy to fall between the cracks...

At 3.04 p.m. on a hot, sticky day in June, Bess finds out she's pregnant.

She could tell her social worker Henry, but he's useless.

She should tell her foster mother, Lisa, but she won't understand.

She really ought to tell Boy, but she hasn't spoken to him in weeks.

Bess knows more than anyone that love doesn't come without conditions.

But this isn't a love story...

Praise for Careless:

'Vivid, bold and beautifully observed' ABBIE GREAVES, author of The Silent Treatment

'Moving and beautifully-written - a voice and a story that needs to be heard' LIBBY PAGE, author of The Lido

'A thought-provoking and compelling coming-of-age story, with a fearless and funny protagonist in Bess' RICHARD ROPER, author of Something to Live For

'Real, raw, heart-wrenching and so wonderfully written. A truly honest coming-of-age story. I laughed, cried, squirmed and couldn't stop reading' JESSICA RYN, author of The Extraordinary Hope of Dawn Brightside

'Heroic and powerful, but also tender; this is such an important novel' CHARLOTTE MENDELSON, author of Daughters of Jerusalem

'The literary equivalent of gold dust' BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH

'So good I'm lying in a tepid bath because my 15 minutes reading turned into 45. What a voice!' AMY BEASHEL, author of The Sky is Mine

Such an elegant and empathic book, with characters I feel I've known forever. A portrait of how it feels to be young, brazen and terrified' JESSICA MOOR, author of Keeper
