Girl meets boy.

Girl loses boy.

Girl loses mind.

Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes. She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship. He’s clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life – to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down. Sophie’s instinct tells her James is too good to be true – and he is.

An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food.  Pear Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere.

BOOK REVIEWS

Pearshaped is Stella’s first book and what a victorious debut it is. With a wonderful lead character who is impossible not to like, a horrible boyfriend, witty dialogue and a vast quantity of delicious sweets and desserts, this book is for anyone who has loved and lost. A sharp, refreshing and occasionally sad story, that tells beautifully, of the balance between love and insanity, it is an honest tale of discovery and finally accepting who you are, cellulite marks and all.’ HandwrittenGirl.com

‘If you are a girl with a passion for food, this modern city heartbreak is the book for you.’ Heat Magazine

‘A fabulous first novel by a British writer…Her writing is witty and snappy and she is hilarious on the food industry … I also found her fascinating on the methodology of contemporary dating.’ Wendy Holden

‘Pear Shaped is the best sort of guilty pleasure, from the copious puddings our heroine Sophie tests in her day job, to the relationship she just knows is wrong for her but can’t seem to give up. You’ll shout out loud willing her to dump him, and cry with laughter as you recognise all the daft things we do when we’re in love. And then you’ll have a second helping of pudding and fall in love with Stella Newman’s quick wit and her clever portrayal of that delicate balance between food, love and insanity.’ Kathleen Baird-Murray

‘It reminded me of a lemon meringue pie: sharp and sweet and satisfying all at once. It’s funny, sad and uplifting… Sophie Klein’s every woman who’s stood in front of a mirror and hated herself, and we adore her for that, and for finally delivering a Toxic Bachelor a good kick up the arse. It’s a belter.’ Kate Long

Achingly funny, searingly honest, Pear Shapedis quite simply the freshest thing I’ve ever read. Take note of the name Stella Newman. A must for anyone who’s ever loved, lost….or eaten too much dessert.’ – Claudia Carroll

This ISN’T a book about babies… It IS about two people, one unexpected pregnancy and a question…

Viv and Max were best friends for years, then they were lovers and then it all went terribly wrong. Now finally they are to be reunited.

Viv feels sick. Not just with nerves at seeing the gorgeous Max again, but because there’s a small chance she might… quite possibly… most definitely… be pregnant. It’s thrilling. But also terrifying.

At thirty-two Viv doesn’t have a job, only eats fruit when there’s nothing else, and can barely meet the needs of her foster cat. And whilst she knows that Max is the love of her life, they don’t exactly have the most stable relationship…

Then, as Viv’s long-lost mother reappears on the scene and they all end up sharing an apartment, all hell breaks loose.

HOW ON EARTH ARE THEY GOING TO COPE?

OMG Baby! is the hilarious, cringe-worthy and touching sequel to Never Google Heartbreak.
