Read an extract from Elizabeth Noble's novel Things I Want My Daughters to Know. Lisa knows about the music, if you can bear to go with what I’ve chosen.

Thank god for insomnia and the internet – I’d never have found it otherwise, and you’d be stuck reading something yucky. It should be read by whoever thinks they can do it without crying, because that is my biggest rule. If you can manage it. Oh, and no black. Wear the brightest thing you can find in your wardrobe.
