"Stunning...a gorgeous, twisty gem of a book" - Simon James Green

How well do you really know the people you love?

Dylan falls for Ellis the moment he meets him - he's funny and fearless and makes living in a small town like Ferrivale more bearable. Dylan is head over heels in love, although deep down he sometimes wonders if Ellis is keeping secrets from him.

When a tragic accident rips them apart, Dylan begins to discover just how little he knows about the boy he loves, and that Ellis isn't the only person in Ferrivale who's been keeping secrets...

Powerful, page-turning and perfect for fans of Adam Silvera and Karen McManus
