'Best book I have read this year' Amazon Reviewer

'Quirky, clever, and original, this will break your heart, but put it back together again'
Katie Fforde

'This is a very special book indeed: funny, powerful, heart-wrenching and so poignant'
Jo Thomas

Fans of Jojo Moyes, Cecilia Ahern and Marian Keyes will love The Songs of Us by Emma Cooper, a laugh-out-loud, funny and heartbreaking novel of love, loss and what it means to be a family.

If Melody hadn't run out of de-icer that day, she would never have slipped and banged her head. She wouldn't be left with a condition that makes her sing when she's nervous. And she definitely wouldn't have belted out the Arctic Monkeys' 'I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor' in assembly at her son's school.

If Dev hadn't taken the kids to the zoo that day, then the accident wouldn't have happened. He wouldn't have left Flynn and Rose without a dad. Or shattered the love of his life's heart.

But if they hadn't seen the missing person report that day, they might never have taken the trip to Cornwall. And, in the last place they expected, discovered what it really means to be 'Us'.

    This is a beautifully written book. The characters are real, and draw you into the story. There is a lot of comedy, tinged with the tragedy of real life. It’s the sort of book that you are sad to finish. I’m going to tell all my friends about it.
