Paperback: 288 pages
Size: 129mm x 198mm


In August 1985, Sarah Ribbons celebrates her fifteenth birthday in the back garden of the suburban seaside house she shares with her ageing father. As she embarks on her final year at Selton High School for Girls Sarah’s main focus is on her erratic friendships with Tina and Kate; her closest allies one moment, her fiercest opponents the next as they compete for the attention of the new boy, Dante.

When her father is unexpectedly taken ill, Sarah is sent to stay with Kate’s family. The girls have never been closer – until events take a sinister turn. Now, as she prepares for her school reunion, thirty-nine-year-old Sarah has to face up to the truth of what really happened back in the summer of 1986.

"In Hurry Up And Wait Isabel Ashdown has produced a perfectly pitched trip back to the mid-eighties. Isabel Ashdown has captured every heartbeat of the uncertainty and excitement of growing up. Duplicitous friendships, awakening sexuality and the trials of school and exams are all depicted as Sarah’s story unfolds. I really enjoyed Isabel Ashdown’s first novel, Glasshopper but, if anything, would have to say Hurry Up And Wait is even better. I loved everything about it." - Bookersatz
