A stand-out new YA romance from the number 1 bestselling author of Everything, Everything - this is Dirty Dancing with a supernatural twist.

Evie is disillusioned about love ever since her dad left her mum for another woman - she's even throwing out her beloved romance novel collection.

When she's given a copy of a book called Instructions for Dancing, and follows a note inside to a dilapidated dance studio, she discovers she has a strange and unwelcome gift. When a couple kisses in front of her, she can see their whole relationship play out - from the moment they first catch each other's eye to the last bitter moments of their break-up.

For Evie, it confirms everything she thinks she knows about love - that it doesn't last.

But at the dance studio she meets X - tall, dreadlocked, fascinating - and they start to learn to dance, together. Can X help break the spell that Evie is under? Can he change Evie's mind about love?

Reviews for Instructions for Dancing

This extraordinary first novel about love so strong it might kill us is too good to feel like a debut. Tender, creative, beautifully written, and with a great twist, Everything, Everything is one of the best books I've read this year. Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Leaving Time * Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times Bestselling author * Gorgeous and lyrical. * The New York Times Book Review on Everything, Everything * Everything, Everything is everything, everything-powerful, lovely, heart-wrenching, and so absorbing I devoured it in one sitting. It's a wonder. The rare novel that lifts and shatters and fills you all at once. * Jennifer Niven, New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places * I just couldn't put it down . . . If you're a fan of The Fault in Our Stars, If I Stay or Before I Die, then this book is for you. * The Guardian on Everything, Everything *
