51 Weeks tells the story of Amy Richards’ hilarious voyage of adventure, growth and self-discovery. Every week, for one year, she must select and undertake a mystery challenge chosen by her best friends, Cate, Claire and Bea.
What starts as harmless fun soon develops into an always exciting, yet frequently turbulent and sometimes profound, experience. As the weeks pass, friendships are forged and broken, infatuation tests morality and ethics, and the revelation of dark secrets changes both Amy’s life and the lives of those she loves — often in unexpected ways.
“Fresh, funny, sassy … much more than 51 challenges” Kim Inglis, TV Presenter and journalist
51 Weeks is much more than a series of challenges. A sassy, highly relatable novel, dealing with the realities of ageing we all face, it’s also an inspirational and empowering journey of self-discovery. It prompts readers to put together their own bowl of challenges, get off the sofa, and try everything they’ve ever wanted to do — often learning something surprising about themselves along the way.
