Foyles Notes

Shortlisted for Polari First Book Prize 2019

Synopsis

FEATURED ON THE GUARDIAN'S BEST BOOKS OF 2018 LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI FIRST BOOK PRIZE 2019 'One of the feminist novels of 2018' Stylist 'Handmaid's Tale-shaped hole in your life? (Read) XX' The Times 'Fantastic - completely topical, utterly believable, and that rare thing: an issue-driven book that feels like a story, not an issue' Julie Cohen 'Pulled on my heartstrings' Bookbag 'A pacy dystopian thriller' Red Magazine 'Topical, probing and quietly intense - XX is a phenomenal debut' Skinny 'Fantastic' Storgy 'Powerful exploration . . . Beautifully paced' Mancunion 'Emotionally compelling' - Lauren Wilkinson on her Year in Reading for Millions HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO FOR A CHILD OF YOUR OWN? When Rosie and Jules discover a ground-breaking clinical trial that enables two women to have a female baby, they jump at the chance to make history. Fear-mongering politicians and right-wing movements are quick to latch on to the controversies surrounding Ovum-to-Ovum (o-o) technology and stoke the fears of the public. What will happen to the numbers of little boys born? Is there a sinister conspiracy to eradicate men at play? In this toxic political climate, Jules and Rosie try to hide their baby from scrutiny. But when the news of Rosie's pregnancy is leaked to the media, their relationship is put under a microscope and they're forced to question the loyalty of those closest to them, and battle against a tirade of hate that threatens to split them apart... * What readers are saying: 'Well written, perfectly paced and so timely. Through excellent character development, Chadwick manages to explore the social, ethical and political questions raised, while still telling what is at its core a beautifully human story' 'I could not put this down, even when my heart was aching and my pulse was raging' 'This is politically and ethically engaging, as well as a very personal read. It shows a world that is only a few years away, and it left me with a lot of thoughts about gender and science. Excellent' 'The whole plot was set out so effectively that it made me feel like this was something that could be being developed somewhere in the world right now or it's in the near distant future!'
