TWO GIRLS WITH TWO VERY DIFFERENT LIVES COME TOGETHER IN THIS BEAUTIFUL AND MOVING STORY OF FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILY, BY A MAJOR NEW VOICE IN GIRLS’ FICTION.
Meet Maya. She has a cosy, comfy life with her slightly hippy mum and dad by the sea in Cornwall. As an only child, Maya feels smothered by her parents’ love and longs to be given more freedom and independence. And what Maya wants more than anything else is a sister.
Meet Cat. She’s never known her dad and her alcoholic mum is not capable of looking after herself, let alone her 11 year old daughter. Cat’s spent her life protecting her mum and keeping some dark secrets. All she wants is to be left alone.
Cat and Maya’s worlds collide when Cat is taken into care and Maya’s parents make the life-changing decision to adopt her. Maya can’t wait to welcome her, but Cat, angry and resentful, resists Maya’s attempts at friendship. Soon, Maya’s idea of a perfect family is blown out of the water. As tensions rise and secrets come out, will the girls ever become friends, let alone sisters?
