The same questions whirl round and round in my head: What does he want from me? How could I have let this happen? AM I GOING TO DIE?
17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with table, pens and paper – and no clue how she got there. As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she’s tried to forget. There’s falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unravelling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there’s something missing. As hard as she’s trying to remember, is there something she just can’t see? Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is she here?
A story of dangerous secrets, intense friendships and electrifying attraction.
Moving, thought-provoking and truly gripping from start to finish.
A most accomplished and daring debut.
