Sparks fly in this unputdownable young adult novel about two teenagers who don't get along - until it becomes a matter of life or death.

PROMISE ME YOU WON'T TELL? Sim's from Byron Bay. Milla lives in Hollywood. Sim's in a foster home and dumpster-dives for food. Milla lives in a mansion with her celebrity parents. When they're forced to email each other for an assignment, it's doomed to fail. So why haven't they stopped? Secrets . . . What did Sim find that has him running scared? Whose footprints are outside Milla's window - and how can she fix her screwed-up family before something really bad happens?


I loved this book so much . . . My favourite character was probably Milla. She had some very funny, classic moments.

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was funny and exciting! I found I could really get in touch with the characters. My favourite was Sim because he was the one who made me laugh the most and I liked his finger issue.

Lucinda, age 12, Random House Australia Book Buddies

I couldn't put it down. Exciting things happened all the time in this book . . . It is good because it portrays the teenagers of today's society extremely well. Also shows how our slang and constant abbreviations of words are a major factor of our lives nowadays.

Erin, age 14, Random House Australia Book Buddies
