It’s always been yes. Yes, I’ll be your friend. Yes, I’ll be your girlfriend. Yes, I’ll move in with you. Yes, yes, yes. I can’t just change my mind now. Can I?
Hailey has always been told she can have it all. And saying yes to every opportunity that comes her way seems like the obvious way to make sure she gets it.
When she finds an engagement ring hidden in her boyfriend Dom’s closet, she knows she’ll say yes.
Her best friend, Sophie, suggests they run a marathon together, and although Hailey hasn’t done more than sprint for a bus in years, she says yes.
And every time her new boss, the infamous Vivian Jones, asks her to stay late (again) at her dream job, the answer is always yes.
But somewhere between saying “yes” to Vivian’s latest demands and still trying to make it home on time for box sets and burritos on the sofa with Dom, Hailey has lost sight of what she really wanted in the first place.
Far from winning at life, Hailey feels like she is fighting to juggle two very different worlds. When those worlds finally collide, could having it all actually mean losing everything?
Fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Holly Bourne, and The Devil Wears Prada will adore this funny, heartfelt, and honest look at navigating those moments in life where you reach a crossroads and have to decide who and what it is you want to be.
