A boy, a girl, an overcrowded dance floor, one or two drinks too many.
Five years later, they're getting married. Not necessarily to each other.
The girl’s a Science student, outspoken and outgoing, moving to Dublin from England and starting a Masters. The boy’s an artist, a freelancing slacker, striving for greatness and struggling to pay his way. When they first meet, they fall for each other hard, veering between madly in love and just plain mad as young love crashes into the stark realities of modern life. Five years on, they’re ready to marry- Each other, or somebody else?
The novel follows their lives, shifting between reminiscing on the past and grappling with the present as their paths continue to intersect in a tragi-comic story spanning a half-decade of falling in and out of love in Dublin city. "Innocents" is a story of love, sex, drugs, and being broke in twenty-first century Ireland.
