Description

Two very different backgrounds; two young people who need each other. When teenagers Jay and Anna are thrown together unexpectedly, their secret love ignites. But when his world of neglect and youth crime collides with her parents' high expectations for her education and show-jumping success, that love has to battle to stay alive. Will their deep feelings and desperate sacrifices be enough to keep them together, when everything else is pulling them apart? SOMEONE DIFFERENT is a story of how teenage love struggles to survive when the pressures of parents, prejudice and deprivation get firmly in its way. Set against the contrasting backdrops of an inner-city housing estate and an idyllic country estate, the book takes its readers on a dramatic, compelling and sometimes violent journey, in which the characters' only defence against all of this, is each other.show more

Our customer reviews

This is essentially a teenage love story, but as the title suggests, these two lovebirds are from very different backgrounds and the course of their love is not going to run smoothly. Chapters are told in alternate points of view, and the gripping sub plot unfolds beautifully. This is more than 'just' a love story - it's fast paced, gritty and a really great read! I highly recommend. show more
