Popular Fiction Book of the Year – An Post Irish Book Awards 2023

‘EXTREMELY funny and refreshingly honest about the unacknowledged complexity of female friendship’ Marian Keyes

‘Her best yet. It’s astute, relatable, hilarious, insightful, and utterly impossible to put down’ Louise O’Neill

‘Unputdownable … a darkly funny, raw story about friendship, vulnerability and honesty’ Irish Times

Lexi is on top of the world
The podcast she co-hosts with her ride-or-die bestie is going stratospheric. But will all this fame and success cost them their friendship?

Joanne’s just had a baby
But her pals keep forgetting that she’s no longer available for tequila-fuelled nights out. She loves her son and her boyfriend but the loneliness is killing her.

Claire is feeling left out
The Whatsapp chat with her old school friends is ominously quiet these days, which can only mean one thing: a side group without her. Can she convince them to give her another chance, or is it time to move on and seek out new BFFs?

Fate brings Claire, Joanne and Lexi together as they navigate the knotty, joyful and occasionally toxic swamp that is female friendship. But how will they each decide which friendships to fight for, and which to let go forever?

My Hot Friend is most interested in exploring the interplays of female friendship in all its complexities, particularly where the hierarchy of newer and long-standing friendships are concerned
Irish Independent
My Hot Friend is ... a genuinely hilarious read that is also full of heart, grit, and real emotion
Sunday Independent
[Sophie] White has written a book that will appeal to both sides of her readership. There's levity and humour here, but the underlying darkness of her work also comes to a head in this refreshing take on the complications of female friendship
