The Very Nice Box

€13,95
Ava Simon designs storage boxes for STAEDA, a slick Brooklyn-based furniture company. She's hard-working, obsessive and heartbroken from a tragedy that killed her girlfriend and upended her life. It's been years since she's let anyone in.

But when Ava's new boss - the young and magnetic Mat Putnam - offers Ava a ride home one afternoon, an unlikely relationship blossoms. Ava remembers how rewarding it canbe to open up - and, despite her hesitancy, she starts to fall for him. But what if Mat isn't who he claims to be? The Very Nice Box is a darkly comic and suspenseful novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat until its gripping finale.

It's at once a satire of toxic masculinity and a big-hearted account of grief, friendship and trust.
