From the publisher

Set against the 90s tabloid era, Becky is the story of Becky Sharp, a young woman determined to make a place for herself in high society and get to the top of the ladder at the newspaper where she works. No matter how many lives she ruins in the process.

Spiky, clever, funny’  Emma Stonex, author of The Lamplighters

‘A true page-turner’ – The Independent

It’s peak 90s London. Scandal dominates the headlines, men dominate the board rooms, and Becky Sharp will stop at nothing to reach the top at the Mercury newspaper.

Mingling with tabloid millionaires and trading favours with royalty, Becky lands scoop after scoop, ruthlessly carving a place for herself in a world determined to ignore her. These are the biggest stories of the decade, and Becky has something to do with every one of them.

But Becky may have more in common with the people she writes about than she thinks – what takes a lifetime to build takes only a moment to destroy . . .

Darkly entertaining, Sarah May’s Becky charts the rise and fall of an unforgettable heroine.
