Award winning Irish author Louise O’Neill is back with her second book called ‘Asking For It’.
The story of ‘Asking For It’ is
It’s the beginning of the summer in a small town in Ireland. Emma O’Donovan is eighteen years old, beautiful, happy, confident
One night, there’s a party. Everyone is there. All eyes are on Emma.
The next morning, she wakes on the front porch of her house. She can’t remember what happened, she doesn’t know how she got there
She doesn’t know why she’s in pain.
But everyone else does. Photographs taken at the party show, in explicit detail, what happened to Emma that night.
But sometimes people don’t want to believe what is right in front of them, especially when the truth concerns the town’s heroes…
I absolutely adored Louise’s debut ‘Only Ever Yours’ which won the Sunday Independent Newcomer Of The Year award at the Bord Gais Book Awards so I can’t wait to get stuck into this book!
You can pre-order Asking For It from Amazon and will be available to buy from good bookshops from 3rd September 2015.
