When a girls' trip to Vegas gives Aisling some unexpected confidence, she decides it's time to grab Ballygobbard by the horns. Throw in a surprise engagement, a very public brawl, new friends and nasty foes, maybe BGB is just what Aisling needs to discover she's stronger than she ever imagined. `Hilariously funny, but often very moving too. Aisling is the real Voice of Ireland.' John Boyne

Author Biography:

With more than ten years' experience in broadcasting and journalism, Co. Kildare native Emer McLysaght wasn't sure if she'd ever get around to writing that book. However, 2018 finds her with bestselling novel Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling under her belt, co-authored with longtime friend and collaborator Sarah Breen. Emer lives in Dublin and has somehow ended up with three cats.

Born and raised in the village of Borris, Co. Carlow, Sarah Breen started her career in journalism at KISS magazine. Since then her writing has appeared in many Irish print publications, as well as online. She and Emer co-wrote OMGWACA mainly in her children's playroom, and never dreamed it would be an Irish Times No. 1 bestseller. Sarah lives in Dublin 7 with her husband and two daughters, and dreams of the day Oasis will reunite.

Emer and Sarah are working with Element Pictures to bring their first novel to the silver screen, and have already started plotting about what might happen in book number three.
