Everybody Hurts

Written by Joanna Nadin, Anthony McGowan

Everybody Hurts Synopsis

MORE HOPE. MORE HEART . . . MORE FOOL YOU. Matt and Sophia live in the same city, but they come from opposite sides of the track. By rights they should never have met. They definitely should never have fallen in love at first sight, of all cliches. But, to their great surprise, they do. That's the easy part. It's what to do next that they struggle with. Friends, family and circumstance are mostly against them. They betray themselves; then they betray each other. And in the end they learn, the hard way, what it takes for love to survive. It's true what they say. Everybody hurts sometimes. But sometimes, too, the pain is worth it.

Everybody Hurts Press Reviews

Infinitely preferable to The Fault in Our Stars . . . It's grittier, and without the candy coating. Sophia and Matt have dynamic and realistic voices . . . Lots of laugh-out-loud moments and some emotional ones make this a book that will be extremely popular at school. * TLS * Two masters of their craft have created something so special here . . . I didn't want to leave Matt & Sophia . . . How refreshing to read about this subject matter in a way that feels so real. Funny, touching - just wonderful. * Rae Earl, author of MY MAD FAT DIARY * Infinitely preferable to The Fault in Our Stars . . . It's grittier, and without the candy coating. Sophia and Matt have dynamic and realistic voices . . . Lots of laugh-out-loud moments and some emotional ones make this a book that will be extremely popular at school. * TLS *
