Dear Hannah,

I'm really sorry, Hannah, it's out of print and I realise it's not stocked on amazon. You might be best off emailing Tom at info@pennedinthemargins to see when it will become available again - I think they're planning to make it available in the future as an ebook, but I don't know when that will be. My first book, Patterns of Mourning is still available, as is Beautiful Girls, which I can send to you in fact if you want to purchase one, and a third collection is out in September. Thanks for contacting me about this and I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Kindest Regards,

Melissa(less)
