Translated into more than thirty-five languages, it is being adapted as an Apple TV series starring Brie Larson.

I bought this as a digital, due to its high praised trumpeting, but must admit my slight wariness (was this just hype and only hype? Bailey opined that the final plot twist was rushed and the character writing seemed monotone, concluding with " Lessons in Chemistry is ultimately a work of fantasy.

Born in California and most recently from Seattle, she currently lives in London with her husband and her dog, 99.
