The highly anticipated companion to Nova Weetman’s critically acclaimed middle-reader The Secrets We Keep.
Clem is slowly rebuilding her life after a house fire destroyed everything. She’s about to start high school with her two best friends and she’s finally settled into living with her dad in their tiny flat. But when her mum unexpectedly moves in, Clem feels like there’s no space for her.
Then she meets Matt, a funny and rebellious fourteen-year-old with family troubles of his own. When everything starts to unravel, Clem must decide which secrets to keep and which to share.
