Snowflake: One Dublin One Book 2024 

Snowflake is a startling, honest, laugh and cry novel about growing up and leaving home, only to find that you’ve taken it with you. Debbie White is at the heart of this novel as she struggles to cope with the weirdest, most difficult parts of herself, her family and her small life. But the fierce love of the White family is never in doubt, and Debbie discovers that even the oddest of families are places of safety. Snowflake is a novel for a generation, and for everyone who’s taken those first, terrifying steps towards adulthood.
