Product description

This book is the new black. Meet the convict we’d most like to be stuck in a cell with. How did nice girl Sadie end up in juvie? You know the saying. You can choose your friends but not your family. Carla makes your average pain-in-the-butt sib look like a church ceiling cherub. Shoplifter. Druggie. Heavy drinker. Party girl. Oh yes – and mum. (Not a very good one.) Sadie is different. Sensible. But when Carla gets them caught up in a drug deal, Sadie takes the rap. Why? Her little niece needs a mum, however awful Carla is. Now Sadie must survive six months in a scary US jail. But that’s not even the hard bit in this tough but sweet book. Forgiving her sister is.

This book contains mature language content.
