"Hope breaks the narrative into succinct, startlingly focused chapters that cut between the characters' experiences in their youth with tensions in adulthood, tracing a jagged triangle around their lives as they face adultery, fierce competition, and lingering guilt over not being there for each other in the past. The book's best moments emerge in the women's frank discussions about their sex lives and sexuality, and their anxious grappling with the future. Hope has a bead on what her readers want--and she delivers."--Publishers Weekly

"Tender and smart, beautiful and melancholy, Expectation examines the entwined lives of three women who "are no longer young but . . . do not feel old." These friends admire, envy, and betray each other, and experience joy and loss together. I ached for them in the best way."--Polly Rosenwaike, author of Look How Happy I'm Making You

"Expectation by Anna Hope brings to vivid life that particular tension one feels just before middle age, when it begins to become clear that life won't end up looking exactly the way we thought it would. The female friendships here are ones we'll all recognize, and in seeing myself in each of these women - their good moments and their bad - I felt implicated in their stories, and in this book. It's an outstanding novel."--Mary Beth Keane, New York Times bestselling author of Ask Again, Yes

"Devastatingly perceptive and emotionally wise."--The Guardian

"'Expectation has defied all my expectations and completely redefined the friendship novel."--Red online

"A generation-defining book, honest and relatable on motherhood, ambition and sex. Like Normal People with female friendship under the microscope."--Erin Kelly, Sunday Times Bestselling novelist

"A Sally Rooney-esque, evocative examination of the nature of female friendship"--i Magazine

"Hope's writing is sublime and her characters so well fleshed out they will feel like friends at the end."--Good Housekeeping, UK

"Perceptive, fresh and full of heart, this is the novel about female friendship that absolutely encapsulates what it is to be a young woman today."--Grazia Magazine


'Profoundly intelligent and humane. Deserves to feature on many a prize shortlist' GUARDIAN
'A brilliant exploration of friendship, feminism and thwarted ambition' PANDORA SYKES
'If you wished Normal People had tackled female friendship, try Expectation' GRAZIA

What happened to the women we were supposed to become?

Hannah, Cate and Lissa are young, vibrant and inseparable. Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry – and the promise of everything to come. They are electric. They are the best of friends.

Ten years on, they are not where they hoped to be. Amidst flailing careers and faltering marriages, each hungers for what the others have. And each wrestles with the same question: what does it take to lead a meaningful life?

The most razor-sharp and heartbreaking novel of the year, EXPECTATION is a novel about finding your way: as a mother, a daughter, a wife, a rebel.
