Adrian Mole & Hendrik Groen fans rejoice! Two diaries, one book! Two singletons go from strangers to lovers in this hilarious, laugh out loud debut.
Sue (Suzanne Conway) and Stu (Stuart Jackson) live in the small city of Rockwood. They have never met, nor do they know of each other. Sue manages a hair salon and spends her days styling the ‘who’s who’, while Stu manages a record store and typically deals with the ‘who’s not’. Though they’ve never met, Sue & Stu do share a common trait, they both keep a diary. A brief encounter between the two sends Stu on a search to find the mystery woman he believes is destined to become his future wife.
Unbeknown to Stu, Sue is busy attempting to be her perfect self. She wants to find the man of her dreams, she wants to settle down, and while she may not admit it to herself or her friends, she’s broody as hell for a baby. Sadly, she’s not having much luck. All her encounters with men have been disastrous. Her mother is in her ear day-in and day-out and she is fearful of spending the rest of her life with her cat, Mr Snuggles.
In a bizarre happenstance, Sue & Stu become an item. Now, their daily diary rants are on each other, not just obscure records and Sue’s mother. Can Stu, the epitome of the ‘man child’ navigate what’s to come? Or will his more recent past catch up to wreak havoc? And what about Sue? Is she ready to embrace this whirlwind situation? Is she capable of coping with Stu’s antics or is she on course for another doomed relationship?
