Publisher Description

A heart-stoppingly beautiful debut novel about what it means to be a friend when your whole world is falling apart.

I was brave. She was reckless. We were trouble.

Best friends Caddy and Rosie are inseparable. Their differences have brought them closer, but as she turns sixteen Caddy begins to wish she could be a bit more like Rosie - confident, funny and interesting.

Then Suzanne comes into their lives: beautiful, damaged, exciting and mysterious, and things get a whole lot more complicated. As Suzanne's past is revealed and her present begins to unravel, Caddy begins to see how much fun a little trouble can be. But the course of both friendship and recovery is rougher than either girl realises, and Caddy is about to learn that downward spirals have a momentum of their own.

Author Biography

Sara lives in Brighton and does all her best writing on trains. She loves books, book people and book things. She has been writing ever since she was too small to reach the "on" switch on the family Amstrad computer. She gets her love of words from her dad, who made sure she always had books to read and introduced her to the wonders of secondhand book shops at a young age.

Sara is trying to visit every country in Europe, and has managed to reach 13 with her best friend. She has also lived in Canada and worked in India.

Review

A moving, exhilarating YA novel about teen friendship... any reader who wants warmth, hilarity, vivid highs, lows and heartbreak should grab this book, which proves that feminist doesn't mean humourless and female-focussed doesn't mean lightweight. Metro Teenage girls are a mystery - even when you've been one! This tale of three such creatures - Caddy, Rosie and Suzanne - attempts to unravel their secrets and the result is quite something. Heat Magazine If you loved Jennifer Niven's 'All the Bright Places' this is a book you need to get your hands on. . . This is a book where you just love the characters, you ache at the complexities of their feelings, you read with baited breath, just wanting what might be impossible, for everything to be ok. Maximum Pop This book is exquisite, and exactly what YA needs. Books about female friendships! I still can't get over how REAL this story was, every single part of it was perfectly realised. It was so sophisticated in how it was written, with beautiful BEAUTIFUL prose, and yet it never once dragged and I raced through it. It deals with difficult topics with sensitivity and humour, and doesn't once patronise the subjects it tackles. I am so excited to see what Sara writes next. This author is one to watch! Holly Bourne, author of Am I Normal Yet? I felt like I was living this book. Zoella
