'Snowflake is a beautiful novel; tender, laugh-out-loud funny, and deeply moving' - Louise O'Neill 

'An astonishing achievement. Louise Nealon is ridiculously talented; already I'm greedy for more' - Stacey Halls 

'Mad and wonderful. I thought I was reading one thing, then discovered - several times as I read - that I was reading a different, even better thing' - Roddy Doyle 

'GAS and beautiful and truthful and touching' - Marian Keyes 

Eighteen-year-old Debbie White lives on a dairy farm with her mother, Maeve, and her uncle, Billy. Billy sleeps out in a caravan in the garden with a bottle of whiskey and the stars overhead for company. Maeve spends her days recording her dreams, which she believes to be prophecies.

This world is Debbie's normal, but she is about to step into life as a student at Trinity College in Dublin. As she navigates between sophisticated new friends and the family bubble, things begin to unravel. Maeve's eccentricity tilts into something darker, while Billy's drinking gets worse.

Debbie struggles to cope with the weirdest, most difficult parts of herself, her family and her small life. But the fierce love of the White family is never in doubt, and Debbie discovers that even the oddest of families are places of safety.

A startling, honest, laugh and cry novel about growing up and leaving home, only to find that you've taken it with you, Snowflake is a novel for a generation, and for everyone who's taken those first, terrifying steps towards adulthood.
