When Olivia opens the bathroom door, the last thing she expects to

see is her best friend Nicola giving birth on the floor - and to

say Nicola is surprised is an understatement. She's not ready to

Staff Choice

When Nicola gives birth in Olivia’s bathroom at her birthday party, it’s the beginning of a massive change. A change that doesn’t just affect her, but Olivia, Olivia’s boyfriend Jonty, their friend Ben, and Olivia’s younger sister, Alice. Emotions rocket, relationships are put to the test, and decisions need to be made. Life isn’t one big party, especially when there’s a baby to think of. Over five months, each character gets to narrate the story, but it’s about more than just the arrival of a baby and how that affects Nicola. It also covers domestic violence, bullying, sexuality, and living with special needs. The baby is a brilliant novel, with fantastic stories for each character. Really enjoyable!
