Meet three Mummy Bloggers - followed, idolised, imitated, taunted and trolled online. Elle Campbell is a glossy, lycra-clad mum with a 10-year plan. Abi Black has quit sugar, moved to the country and is home-schooling her kids. Leisel Adams slogs away at the office every day before rushing home to see her kids. When each of them are nominated for a top blogging award with a hefty cash prize, it sets the scene for a brutal and often hilarious battle to win those all-important clicks....

When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realising that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out.

It is June 1778, and the world seems to be turning upside down. The British Army is withdrawing from Philadelphia, with George Washington in pursuit, and for the first time, it looks as if the rebels might actually win. But for Claire Fraser and her family, there are even more tumultuous revolutions that have to be accommodated. Her former husband, Jamie, has returned from the dead, demanding to know why in his absence she married his best friend, Lord John Grey.
