Day 3 of YA Month is upon us and I have the wonderful Tom Ellen & Lucy Ivison on my blog with an extract from their new book Freshers. An amazing read that shows how the first year of uni goes and it is utterly hilarious and oh so wonderful! They write together so beautifully.
Co-authors of the hilariously funny novels Lobsters and Never Evers, Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison met in the sixth form and have been friends ever since. Lucy is a school librarian at a girls school in central London where she gets most of her inspiration. Tom is a journalist and has written for ShortList, Time Out, Vice, talkSPORT, ESPN and Viz.

NEW CITY. NEW HOME. NEW FRIENDS. FRESH START … Uni beckons. Phoebe can’t wait, especially since her crush from school will be there. She’ll be totally different once she gets there: cooler, prettier, smarter ... the perfect potential girlfriend. She’ll reinvent herself completely. But Luke’s oblivious, still reeling from the break-up with his ex and trying to find himself along the way. Thrown head-first into a world of new friends, fall-outs, weird societies, parties and social media (and personal) disasters, can Phoebe and Luke survive the year, let alone find each other? A warm, hilarious and perfectly observed coming-of-age comedy about the first year of uni; a story of friendships and feminism, falling apart and discovering who you are, from the much-loved writing partnership of Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison.
