'JADED made me laugh, cry and really bloody furious' Stacey Halls*, Sunday Times* bestselling author of The Familiars

**Jade isn't even my real name. Jade began as my Starbucks name, because all children of immigrants have a Starbucks name.

Jade has become everything she ever wanted to be.**

Successful lawyer. Dutiful daughter. Beloved girlfriend. Loyal friend.

Until one night after a work event when something terrible happens to her, she starts to wonder if she really wanted to be the person she's become.

She's learned to laugh when she's felt like crying, opted to be invisible when she wanted to speak up, and adapted her identity to please whoever she's spending time with.

As she tries to confront what happened, Jade finds she has a choice to make but the question is, which is the right one?

This searing novel explores the strength we find in female friendship, the hope that lights up the dark moments, and recovery that's far from linear. JADED will leave you asking yourself: what would you have done in Jade's situation?

'This raw, dark novel explores racism, class & sexism & you'll want to savour every word on every page' Refinery 29
