Two reads for this month’s book club

Imogen Crimp’s A Very Nice Girl revolves around Anna, who’s a student during the day, and sings in a jazz bar at night to make ends meet. It’s there she meets Max, fourteen years older than her, married but in the middle of getting a divorce. Not that he can bring himself to say the D word. A darkly funny, honest debut novel about love, sex, power and desire. Bloomsbury, available at Exclusive Books

In Whatever Gets You Through The Night by Charlie Higson, a 15 year old schoolgirl is living in the luxury Corfu compound of a tech billionaire who’s young, handsome and charismatic, but under the guise of training a girls’ tennis team, is running an abusive cult.

A fixer is hired to get her out. What should have been a simple rescue turned out to be a little more complex … what with the Albanian gangsters, Greek drug dealers, psychotic bodyguards, flat eathers and spoilt wealthy teenagers looking for dangerous kicks.

Loads of intertwined stories come together as everyone converges on a glamorous Summer party. A thrilling tale about the dark truths that lurk beneath the surface of an idyllic Mediterranean island. Little Brown, available at Exclusive Books.
