(From the publisher):
Frankie Blue's had the same friends since they grew up together in West London. He loves them, he really does—he's just not sure if he likes them any more. Tony the wide-boy, Colin who still lives with his Mum, dependable Nodge—they're starting to feel like a habit that's hard to break. The only thing keeping them together is some weird historical superglue made of banter, beer and nostalgia for their Perfect Day: 14 August 1984. A day in the school holidays, full of sunshine and promise, a day they vowed to commemorate every year—no matter what. But then comes Frankie's Great Betrayal—Veronica, and marriage. The tensions between his old friends and new life increase, until Veronica's 30th birthday...the 14th August. Frankie has to choose, between his mates and his mate. He thinks it's all over. It is now...
