Description

Aleksandra has issues with her voice. Stress makes her stutter, and her life is one of stress. She can only speak clearly on stage, freed by the words of the character she plays. Then, when Aleksandra befriends her new neighbour Megan, and through her meets charming, handsome Ruben, it seems she has discovered a doorway into a different world, and a different Alek. But Ruben wants Aleksandra to play a particular role for him, and it is one that will come close to destroying her.

About Manuela Salvi

Manuela Salvi is the author of over 20 books for children and young people in Italy and after the original version of Girl Detached and her picture book Nei Panni di Zaff were banned in Italy due to 'strong' and 'gay' content, she determined to study censorship and self-censorship in children's and young adult fiction. She was awarded the Jacqueline Wilson scholarship to study at Roehampton and is working on her PhD thesis and new English-language fiction.
