I had a fun time at the launch of Eve Ainsworth second YA Book, CRUSH last Wednesday at Daunt books Cheapside, so much so that I only managed to get one photo, of Eve cutting the amazing cake. The book is about a toxic teenage relationship. This is the blurb from goodreads:
Love hurts … but should it hurt this much? Reeling from her mum’s sudden departure, Anna finds the comfort she needs in her blossoming relationship with Will. He’s handsome and loving, everything Anna has always dreamt of. He’s also moody and unpredictable, pushing her away from her friends, her music. He wants her to be his and his alone. He wants her to be perfect. Anna’s world is closing in. But threatening everything is a dark secret that not even Will can control… Eve Ainsworth’s gripping second novel is a pitch-perfect exploration of love at its most powerful, addictive and destructive.
Sounds great, and the cover is VERY striking. I’m looking forward to reading it.
