Product description

From cult commune to urban Hackney is a big and scary step, even through rose-tinted glasses… Eighteen months ago, Rose and her little brother Rudder escaped from a strict religious sect with their mum. Now they live in a cramped, smelly one-bed flat above a kebab shop. It’s not exactly paradise. And yet it kind of is. Finally: no more rules about clothes, books, films and music. Rudder gorges on once-taboo Harry Potter and dances to Simon and Garfunkel. Rose swaps her frumpy ankle skirts for cute fairy dresses, and glitter, and her new boyfriend Kye. Still, there’s loads of scary stuff in their new life that they have no idea how to handle. And then things go horribly wrong. Must Rose go back to a life she hates, to save the people she loves?
