It's by Nina de la Mer who wrote 4am which I haven't read but which I'd heard lots about. Layla is about a woman working in London as a lap dancer and I don't want to ruin it by saying any more but I'm blown away and want to have a mums net discussion as my " real life" book group tend to stick to the Richard and Judy list!! go on go on go on!! let me know what you think!!
