When I Ran Away by Ilona Bannister
Sometimes, it’s the books you don’t expect that hit you the hardest and this sums up Ilona Bannister’s When I Ran Away in a nutshell. The most honest (and hysterical) account of the pressures of modern-day motherhood that we’ve come across in a very long time, there were moments when we both genuinely had to stop, take a breath and process the author’s flawless observations. We both genuinely believe it should be mandatory reading for new mums. There was so much that we felt while reading and so much that we were left thinking about after we had finished that we knew we had to film an IGTV on this moving and important debut. It’s coming tonight and we hope you enjoy it.
