6 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
From the author of modern classic The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets comes a feel-good novel about hope, love and the powerful bond between sisters. Its 1990. The Happy Mondays are in the charts, a 15-year-old called Kate Moss is on the cover of the Face magazine, and Julia Roberts wears thigh-boots for the poster for a new movie called Pretty Woman. February Kingdom is nineteen years old when she is knocked sideways by family tragedy. Then one evening in May she finds an escaped canary in her kitchen and it sparks a glimmer of hope in her. With the help of the bird called Yellow, Feb starts to feel her way out of her own private darkness, just as her aunt embarks on a passionate and all-consuming affair with a married American drama teacher. THIS COULD BE EVERYTHING is a coming-of-age story with its roots under the pavements of a pre-Richard Curtis-era Notting Hill that has all but vanished. Its about what happens when you start looking after something more important than you, and the hope a yellow bird can bring Exquisite. Enchanting. Quite possibly perfect. The next One Day/Me Before You Veronica Henry 'A beautiful balm of a book full of hope and possibility, This Could Be Everything will break your heart and piece it back together again with wit, warmth and magic. The way Rice weaves together fiction and reality is delicious, with details on every page that will have pop fans, Londoners and 90s nostalgics squealing with delight. Nobody captures the exhilaration of first love and teen fandom quite like her' Lauren Bravo The most gorgeous feel-good story about love and grief and how the smallest things can start a journey of healing. Georgina Moore Exquisite. Enchanting. Quite possibly perfect.

The way Rice weaves together fiction and reality is delicious, with details on every page that will have pop fans, Londoners and 90s nostalgics squealing with delight. Nobody captures the exhilaration of first love and teen fandom quite like her' Lauren Bravo A reason to be cheerful - THIS COULD BE EVERYTHING is the book I've been waiting my whole life for, a perfect 90s period piece about sisters, it's glam, gorgeous, a little bit melancholic and a lot charming Daisy Buchanan Ive never read such a perfect evocation of the 90s; the music, the fashion, the feel. Nor such a summation of youth and loss and love. This book is wise and tender and dazzling. Rice is just a masterful writer Laura Barton This moving, hopeful and brilliantly told story inhabits the West London of my youth. I loved it Betty Boo

So this was making me eye roll a little (still being book-grumpy) and I was on the verge of putting it aside. Then it turned somewhat ridiculous, but actually that snapped me back into it and I ended up being quite moved by it. Still a bit ambivalent about it in parts, but also moved. Ambivalently moved? 😆 A light pick for me.

TheLudicReader I think you can roll your eyes and be moved simultaneously. Happens to me all the damn time. 1d

Enjoyed this one, heart warming without being too soppy or sentimental and deals really well with grief and people‘s messy lives.
