Development[edit]

Kerr has stated that "The plot is dark, rooted in my family's experiences of falling apart. It is my response to my sister having kidney failure at 27 and refusing a transplant."[1]

Reception[edit]

The Mirror panned the book as "bin it", writing that "There are all manner of Hollywood in-jokes and cliches, and this is a very annoying novel that is trying to be far too clever - but it's rather dumb instead."[2]
