EVIE EPWORTH IS TEN YEARS OLDER. BUT IS SHE ANY WISER?!Praise for The Miseducation of Evie Epworth ‘Tight, clever and riddled with wit.

As if this isn’t complicated enough, her disastrous love life leaves her worrying that she may be destined for eternal spinsterdom, concerned, as she is, that ‘even Paul had married Linda by the time he was 26’.

With the help of friends, both old and new, she might just find a way through her messy 20s and finally discover just who exactly she is meant to be…
