Joanna Nadin’s first novel for adults, The Queen of Bloody Everything, is about mothers, daughters and how we can make many choices in life but can’t choose where we come from.

As Edie Jones lies in a bed on the fourteenth floor of a Cambridge hospital, her adult daughter Dido tells their story, starting with the day that changed everything.

That was the day Dido – aged exactly six years and twenty-seven days old – met the handsome Tom Trevelyan, his precocious sister, Harry, and their parents, Angela and David.

The day Dido fell in love with a family completely different from her own.

Because the Trevelyans were exactly the kind of family Dido dreamed of.

They were normal.

Publisher Review

A worthy successor for Adrian Mole. Nadin achieves the rare trick of producing a book that will make both adults and teenagers laugh out loud -- Observer on The Rachel Riley Diaries: My So-Called Life Poignant, funny and utterly unputdownable -- Catherine Bruton on Joe All Alone Joanna Nadin has a wonderful ability to paint an accurate picture of modern family life but, even when there is sadness, intertwine it with humour -- Liverpool Echo on Spies, Dad, Big Lauren & Me
