Giveaway: How To Make A Friend by Fleur Smithwick

Today is my stop on the How To Make A Friend blog tour, and I've teamed up with the lovely people at Transworld Publishers for this amazing giveaway. There are 3 copies up for grabs! (UK only)





As a lonely child, Alice found comfort the same way so many others do – she invented a friend. Sam was always there when she needed him, until one day… he wasn’t. 

Now, Alice has a
happy, normal life; she has a handful of close friends and a career as a photographer. 

But when a tragic accident shatters the world Alice has constructed, the sense of isolation that haunted her in childhood returns. And with it, so does Sam. 

To Alice, he looks and feels like a real person, but how can that be?  P
And who will decide when it is time for him to leave again?

She worked in various jobs, before becoming a full-time writer. As well as novels, Fleur writes short stories and has won The Writers’ Village and Segora competitions.
