'Isn't Life Strange' is the first book about the life of Alice Templeton.
Do you ever get the feeling that dealing with your witch of a boss rates much higher up on the negotiation scale than a job with the UN? Or listen as your friends discuss your life and how to fix it as though you weren’t there, sitting right next to them? Alice certainly does.
Have you ever allowed yourself to be seduced by a bottle of Pinot Grigio and a giant bag of chocolate buttons instead of tackling a mammouth to do list? Or made a vow to better yourself by drinking less, going to bed early and being more professional only to break it on the first day?
Alice Templeton has and a lot more besides. She is nearing her thirtieth birthday and hasn’t achieved much of what she had hoped to by this land mark. She lives in a flat owned by the boyfriend whom she has forgotten why she ever loved. Her friends think he’s an arse, her brother knows she can do so much better, the trouble is that Alice is too afraid of life as a thirty year old singleton and she just can’t let go.
Her wonderful friends, big brother and the class of special needs children that she teaches all help to remind her that life is there for the living yet she feels as though hers might just be out of her control. Can she work out how to rein it in and regain the steering wheel enough to grow up and embrace her new decade?
Alice's life is often hilarious, sometimes tragic and on occasions, perhaps, familiar as she tackles what is thrown at her in her own honest and touching way.
