If someone hurts your sister and you're any kind of man, you seek revenge, right? If your brother's accused of a terrible crime but says he didn't do it, you defend him, don't you? When Mikey's sister claims a boy assaulted her, his world begins to fall apart. When Ellie's brother is charged with the offence, her world begins to unravel. When Mikey and Ellie meet, two worlds collide. This is a brave and unflinching novel from the bestselling author of "Before I Die". It's a book about loyalty and the choices that come with it. But above all it's a book about love.

Review quote

"Split loyalties and the chasm between the young couple's life experiences make their enduring relationship a triumph" -- Geraldine Brennan Observer "A moving account of first love" -- Nicholas Tucker Independent "Downham gets right to the bottom of painful questions ... [The book is] beautifully written with a painful but penetrating awareness and it has one of the sweetest love scenes I've read in a book for teenagers" -- Jill Murphy thebookbag.co.uk "Shot through with romance, this is a gripping and realistic look at how teenagers deal with big issues and face up to tough consequences when things go wrong" -- Julia Eccleshare Love Reading "A beautifully balanced novel with the darkness of the central crime never forgotten or over-sweetened by the love story" -- Keith Grey Guardian

Loved it!

I loved this book, a beautiful look at the things we do for love and how it can turn up in the most unlikely of places. Check out my full review at www.ourbookclub.net.au/LiteratureAndFiction2011.phpshow more
