From the Publisher

‘Unputdownable…chillingly well-drawn’ Sophie Hannah‘An assured debut takes the Mary Poppins myth and turns it into a menacing tale of the enemy invited in…What makes this smartly written first novel so disturbing is its moral ambiguity’ Daisy Goodwin, The Sunday Times‘A suspenseful and emotive examination of a family in meltdown…It’s a skilfully executed debut novel that nestles perfectly alongside the dark, nuanced psychological thrills of Daphne du Maurier and Sophie Hannah’ Waterstones Books Quarterly'”Everything and Nothing” is a beautifully written, completely gripping novel that plays on the unsettling notion that sometimes the least safe place is your very own home' Emily Mortimer

I kept waiting for the plot to develop but it just never did. Two miserable people hire a mentally ill nanny who cleans their house really well. Meh, it could have been so much better but sadly, it wasnt.
