Publisher's Synopsis

A hilarious new graphic novel from the author of Bloodlust and Bonnets

Katie and Nas are best friends, exes, and co-dependents. They share everything, including a tiny room in a North London townhouse belonging to their landlord, Jeremy, former host of the hit 90s show Football Lads.

While Katie bounces from job to job and obsesses about falling behind in life, Nas has bigger things in mind, such as waiting endlessly for their visa to come through and working on a seismic art project that will revolutionize politics and society as we know it.

Their friend Emma, meanwhile, seems to have it all figured out - job, mortgage, engagement - yet the long hours working for tech giant Arko and endless wedding admin have left her similarly anxious and unsatisfied.

But when Katie's latest job finds her tutoring the daughter of Arko's formidable CEO, and Emma welcomes the eccentric and enigmatic Alicia to her team at Arko, neither are aware that all of their lives - and possibly the future of society itself - are about to change forever . . .

The new graphic novel from Emily McGovern, creator of the much loved webcomic My Life As A Background Slytherin, Twelve Percent Dread is an uproarious tale of female friendship in an anxious and tech-obsessed world.
