ONE FROM THE BOYS

 
 

31 Days of Wonder, by Tom Winter, is about how a chance encounter can change your life. The synopsis says: "'And in that instant, he knows in his heart that today is a momentous day; come what may, he and Alice will meet again, and life will never be the same.'
Alice is stuck in an internship she loathes and a body she is forever trying to change. Ben, also in his early twenties, is still trying to find his place in the world. By chance they meet one day in a London park.
Day 1: Ben spots Alice sitting on a bench and feels compelled to speak to her. To his surprise, their connection is instant. But before numbers are exchanged, Alice is whisked off by her demanding boss.
20 minutes later: Alone in her office toilets, Alice looks at herself in the mirror and desperately searches for the beauty Ben could see in her. Meanwhile, having misunderstood a parting remark, Ben is already planning a trip to Glasgow where he believes Alice lives, not realising that they actually live barely ten miles apart.
Over the next 31 days, Alice and Ben will discover that even if they never manage to find each other again, they have sparked a change in each other that will last a lifetime." 31 Days of Wonder is out in August 2017.
