Book Synopsis:

Every day Iona travels the ten stops from Hampton Court to Waterloo Station by train. Every day she sees the same people, whom she knows only by nickname: Impossibly-Pretty-Bookworm and Terribly-Lonely-Teenager. Of course, the commuters never speak. Then one morning, the man she calls Smart-But-Sexist-Manspreader chokes on a grape right in front of her. He’d have died were it not for Sanjay, a nurse. This single event starts a chain reaction, and people with almost nothing in common discover that a chance encounter can blossom into much more.
