What’s so special about this novel? First, it’s longlisted for the British literary award Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the Branford Boase and the YA Book Prize, both UK-based literary awards too.
But more than that, it’s an authentic, artful, and empathetic story about friendship, secrets, and lies.
Who is Sophie and Freya to each other?
Why did Freya leave town so suddenly?
What are the lies that drives the entire plot?
Non Pratt has this brilliance and deftness to fill in each page with conversations and statements from the point of view of diverse teenage characters.
To say that you won’t be able to put it down once you started reading it is a complete understatement. This is another winner for fans of Beautiful Broken Things and The Sun Is Also a Star.
