Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2016.
Spectacular like a phoenix rising. A teenage girl’s life goes up in flames. Fireworks will go off in your heart. And if we know Jenny Valentine, there’s one other big player here. Fate. Iris’s future is burning up faster than family snapshots on a bonfire. Her father, Ernest, is dying – still a stranger to her. Her best friend, Thurston, is on the other side of the world. And now Mum has declared war. Mum wants Ernest’s priceless art collection. But Ernest has other ideas. Amid all the bitter lies, the truth has a strange way of coming to light… Startling and moving, this (like all of Jenny’s books) will open your mind – and your heart. Be warned, only one thing is certain: these words don’t even tell you the half of it.
- A bold and brilliant novel about love, lies and redemption
- Jenny Valentine is one of today’s most original YA voices
- Her books include Finding Violet Park and Broken Soup
- Finding Violet Park won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize
“A beautifully written story, soaked in love and important things.” Steven Camden
