February Kingdom is nineteen years old when she is knocked sideways by family tragedy. Then one evening in May she finds an escaped canary in her kitchen and it sparks a glimmer of hope in her.

The way Rice weaves together fiction and reality is delicious, with details on every page that will have pop fans, Londoners and 90s nostalgics squealing with delight. Nobody captures the exhilaration of first love and teen fandom quite like her' Lauren Bravo

‘A reason to be cheerful - THIS COULD BE EVERYTHING is the book I've been waiting my whole life for, a perfect 90s period piece about sisters, it's glam, gorgeous, a little bit melancholic and a lot charming’ Daisy Buchanan
 
‘I’ve never read such a perfect evocation of the 90s; the music, the fashion, the feel. Nor such a summation of youth and loss and love. This book is wise and tender and dazzling. Rice is just a masterful writer’ Laura Barton
 
‘This moving, hopeful and brilliantly told story inhabits the West London of my youth. I loved it’ Betty Boo
