I thought I wrote in English

But I guess it’s not quite right for the English market. I got some fun queries from Walker UK today for the UK edition of Girl, Stolen coming out there in February. Some of the words that will change:

Cell phone = mobile
HMOs = heath care
Vest = waistcoat (a vest is an undershirt
Diaper = Nappy
Adult diaper = incontinence pad
Rubbing alcohol = witch hazel
Advil = Anadin
Band-Aids = plasters
In spades = bucket loads
Pay dirt = jackpot
