Description

‘Darkly voyeuristic but with heart – as funny as it is painful and true. We loved it’ GRAZIA

‘I don’t think I’ve ever turned the pages of a book so quickly. So sharp, so tender… truly excellent storytelling’ DAISY BUCHANAN

UNDERBELLY
[n.] singular

The soft underside or abdomen of a mammal.
An area vulnerable to attack.
A dark, hidden part of society.

Lo and Dylan are living parallel lives, worlds apart.

Lo is the ultimate middle-class mother, all perfectly polished Instagram posts and armchair activism.

Dylan is just about surviving on a zero-hours telemarketing job from her flat, trying to keep food on the table.

But when they meet at the school gates, they are catapulted into each other’s homes and lives – with devastating consequences . . .

Explosive, sharply humorous and unflinchingly honest, Underbelly slices through the filtered surface of modern women’s lives to expose the dark truth beneath.

Publisher Review

A compelling story about the complexities of female friendships and the dark side of the Internet * HEAT * Darkly voyeuristic but with heart - as funny as it is painful and true. We loved it * GRAZIA * Timely reading for the Instagram generation * NEW! * I don't think I've ever turned the pages of a book so quickly. This is the first book I've read that really captures life online - the satire is so sharp, but the emotional core of the story is so tender and pulsing. This is truly excellent storytelling * DAISY BUCHANAN * Anna and Matt write in their signature style: entertaining and playful but with huge depth, meaning and heart. Underbelly invites us all down the rabbit hole into the wild, weird and sometimes wonderful corners of the Internet. I raced through it * EMMA GANNON *
