As Hannah tries to sort out the present - enigmatic best friend, dream boy, fractured family - it is a long-held secret of her grandmother's that will show the way forward. A tender, heart-wrenching story.

Essie is a character I wish I’d written. This is a book for anyone who thinks bad things don’t happen to good teenagers, and for those who know they do. I loved it.
Vikki Wakefield, author of ALL I EVER WANTED
This is an amazing book filled with secrets, relationships and hope. It’s an addictive read . . . The story becomes a part of you, you understand the characters as if they were your own family.

Beautifully narrated and with a captivating tale, the sections from Essie's point of view were a highlight of the book . . . I would highly recommend this book to older teen readers with appreciation for character development and narrative nuance . . . Fans of Melina Marchetta will probably enjoy this novel.
