Description:
Ever wondered what happened to your first love? Imagine bumping into them twelve years later and realizing you still fancy them rotten. That's exactly what happens to Dig Ryan when he sees Delilah again. Now imagine you're Nadine. You and Dig have been best friends for fifteen years. And you've finally realized that you're in love with him. So when Delilah who always was your nemesis returns, you're mad with jealousy and can't help behaving childishly. Like phoning your first love Phil just to get your own back Thirty-Nothing is a story of ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends and friends dabbling with yesterday when they really should be thinking about today.

Review:
Fans of Jewel's first novel, Ralph's Party, are in for a treat with Thirty-Nothing. Best friends since school, Dig and Nadine have drifted into a comfortable and mutually dependent existence which barely leaves room for partners. However, when Dig's infamous ex, Delilah, suddenly resurfaces in their lives, a chain of events ensues, forcing the characters to delve into their pasts and face old heartaches, with surprising results. Yet another foray into the lives of trendy young Londoners, you may ask? Yes, but unlike many in this genre, Jewell's novel has a warmth and appeal which transcends the setting. Deeply romantic, this book will make you laugh outloud, and is liable to leave even the toughest of cynics with a warm fuzzy feeling. (Kirkus UK)

What the papers say:
Deliciously enjoyable...addictively readable without being irratating or glib' The Times Daily Mirror Guardian
