Fourteen-year-old Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their controlling, super-strict father all their lives. Forced to wear Mum's odd hand-made garments and forbidden from reading teenage magazines, they know they're very different to 'normal' girls - but when Dad has a stroke and ends up in hospital, unable to move or speak, Prue suddenly discovers what it's like to have a little freedom. Sent to a real school for the first time, Prue struggles to fit in. The only person she can talk to is her kindly, young - and handsome - art teacher, Rax. They quickly bond, and Prue feels more and more drawn to him. As her feelings grow stronger, she begins to realise that he might feel the same way about her. But nothing could ever happen between them - could it?show more

Our customer reviews

I really loved this book! it broke my heart and made me laugh so hard. I was so excited when Rax liked her back, and I could pretty much feel all of her emotions. It was complex, but you could sorta chose to either read in btween the linesor just the simple story, as both were fantastic. it was one of those storys that kept me thinking about it for days, even trying to find fanfics and youtube vids about it. Possibly in my top five books EVER. you should definatly read this book. more
