To her friends, Amber leads the perfect life with her successful marriage, powerful job as a headhunter in London and her immaculate style.
But as more of her inner circle fall pregnant, and her best friend Dylan decides to adopt a baby with his gay lover, Amber's carefully structured world begins to fall apart.
Amber has built her life around her decision not to have children, but now she questions the underlying reasons for the choices she has made.
As she succumbs to her overpowering insecurities, the parallels between her rash emotions and those of her mother, years before, soon reveal themselves...With a charming and complex heroine and a group of friends heading towards midlife, many of whom are only just finding out who they really are. "Something I'm Not" introduces a sophisticated new voice for a generation of women who have made the decision not to have children, and who aren't afraid to talk about it.
