‘Hilarious, mordant, moving and rude, a yuletide delight’ The Guardian

‘Very relatable, chaotic Christmassy rom-com’ Cosmopolitan

When three very different siblings, Fern, Rowan and Willow, go home for a Christmas reunion at their family home in Edinburgh, it’s not long before some VERY BIG SECRETS threaten their cosy holiday …

The McAllister house on Arboretum Road has seen 120 Christmases since its completion.

This year, FERN is bringing her gorgeous boyfriend home and she wants everything to be perfect.

But her twin brother ROWAN would rather go on the pull than pull crackers with the family.

And their younger sister WILLOW is terrified of Christmas Day.

With FOUR sleeps till Christmas,
THREE secretive siblings,
TWO hot houseguests,
And ONE juicy secret …
This Christmas, there will be some BIG surprises under the tree.

Sometimes at Christmas, you don’t get what you want, you get what you need…

Family secrets, chance encounters and festive traditions collide in this juicy Christmas treat from Juno Dawson.

Publisher Review

A gripping, personal tale of fame and misfortune * BBC Radio 2 * I loved the contrast of cosy Christmas spirit and gorgeous romance with the acerbic humour and grit you'd expect from a Juno Dawson novel * One to Watch - The Bookseller * Dawson has a gift for writing believable teenagers characters, and Meat Market is a powerful counterweight to light-hearted literature that still portrays modelling as the stuff of dreams * The Guardian * Juno Dawson slashes through the glamour of the fashion industry ... combining blockbuster appeal with piercing commentary on modelling, body image and consent * The Observer * Well-researched and hard-hitting, the novel doesn't skimp on the glamour but neither does it skirt the darker side of fashion * Financial Times * An unflinching expose of the darker side of fashion * i newspaper * A compelling story with an important - and timely - message * S Magazine (Sunday Express) * Having worked as a journalist on the fringes of the fashion industry, Dawson started to realise there were problems - namely, models were often very young, nameless and simply bodies who were not treated well by those around them. Meat Market is a gripping page-turner, an expose of the dark and often seedy side of the industry, addressing timely themes around #MeToo and #TimesUp. * The Independent * Juno Dawson is one of the hottest writers of young adult fiction and non-fiction in the UK right now * Bustle * Guaranteed to be your summer read * GLAMOUR * Engaging, enthralling...Dawson's book is heartbreaking, painful, and worth every second. . . you won't be able to put it down as you get drawn into Jana's world * Happiful magazine * Honest, raw, this timely expose is essential post-#MeToo reading * Image * Meat Market shines a probing spotlight on the fashion industry, exposing its dark underbelly with a frankness that's refreshing. Yet what makes this such a compelling and timely read is how Dawson balances the ugliness with humour and heart without being moralistic * Culturefly * It's a totally compelling and compulsive read * WRD magazine * In an era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, this is an important read * Woman's Way * Juno Dawson covers topics applicable and of interest to Young Adult readers with honesty and realism * NB Magazine * There is something incredibly genuine about this novel in its depiction of the beauty trade's ugly side. . . Dawson manages to make Jana's story feel timely and universal without ever straying into cliche * The F Word * Intoxicating * Tortoise *
