our close friends – Nandi, Princess, Zaza and Tumi – have the kind of lives worth envying in a Joburg suburb. They’re successful and oh-so fab.

Nandi is preparing for her glamorous wedding; Zaza is having a sizzling affair; Tumi’s dream of having a child is about to come true; and Princess is head over heels in love.

But almost simultaneously their worlds are plunged into ­crisis when things go wrong for each of them.

While they still have one another, their problems in love and life seem insurmountable as they strive to overcome them and find happiness.

The novel, which was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize 2011: Africa Region, is fast-paced and will have you laughing out loud at times and reaching for the tissues at others.

By the end you’ll feel like the fifth friend in their zany group. A great birthday gift for a girlfriend or book-club read.
