The Breakfast Club meets One Day in Floored, a unique collaborative novel by seven bestselling and award-winning YA authors: Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Melinda Salisbury, Lisa Williamson and Eleanor Wood.
When they got in the lift that morning, they were strangers. Sasha, who is at the UK's biggest TV centre desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he's by far the richest - and best-looking - guy in the lift; Velvet, who regrets wearing the world's least comfortable shoes to work experience; Dawson, who isn't the good-looking teen star he was and desperate not to be recognized; Kaitlyn, who's slowly losing her sight but won't admit it, and Joe, who shouldn't be there at all, but who wants to be there the most.
And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year . . .
Kathleen's review - I loved reading this novel with the 7 different authors each writing a separate character - well, 6 characters and one omniscient narrator to be precise. It's great following their lives and seeing the changes as they get older. A really good story - I nearly missed my bus stop (twice) because I was so caught up in it.
