About the event

As the eldest child in a single-parent family, Kylie's always had more important things on her mind than smiling. Controlling her job, her home, her romantic life – and most importantly, her family – takes all her concentration. She's always succeeded, though, because that's who Kylie is.

Until one Monday morning, when Kylie discovers the local pharmacy where she works is being taken over by a huge corporation, putting her stable job at risk. This leads to a cascade of disasters: her boyfriend is acting suspiciously and she finds herself caring for a high-maintenance Pomeranian.

When her fiercely independent mother breaks an ankle and needs help, it's up to Kylie, as usual, to fix things. She reluctantly packs her bags, but back in her childhood home, things start to unravel. Could it be that Kylie's carefully curated life is not so perfect after all?

Toni Jordan’s Prettier if She Smiled More will make you laugh and cry with empathy and recognition and asks the question: when is it too late to start over?

Meet Toni in conversation at Muse.

Tickets: $10 (entry only) // $40 (includes a discounted copy of the book RRP $32.99)
