The Rachel Incident

by Rachel O’Donoghue

Rachel is 20, finishing up her English degree, working in a bookstore, and contemplating what comes next as she launchers into adulthood just as the Irish economy begins to crash. But when James is hired as a temp at the beginning of the holiday season, the two become fast friends and Rachel’s world takes twists and turns that she never could have imagined.

In this novel, Caroline O’Donoghue mines the messiness of young adulthood as the two characters navigate friendship, loyalty, some really questionable decisions, and ultimately love and forgiveness. It’s wise and witty, and filled with characters who will win you over from the very first page. – Diana
