An insightful and emotional drama about the complexities of truth and family loyalty, from best-selling YA novelist Keren David. Telling the difficult story of children in care, this is a searing and beautifully written tale of one girl's journey to understand the reality of her upbringing.
Ruby has had a lot of foster siblings over the years, but none of them have been anything like Clara. After growing up in almost complete isolation, Clara is distraught at being separated from her mother and overwhelmed by life in a world she doesn’t understand. But the more Ruby tries to help Clara fit in, the more she realises she has to face up to some struggles of her own… An affecting tale of two girls trying to find and accept their truth.
Keren David worked as a news reporter and feature writer before publishing her compelling debut YA novel, When I Was Joe. Her novels have won and been nominated for numerous awards including the Carnegie Medal and the Branford Boase award. Keren lives in North London.
