  • Pages 224
  • HarperTeen (March 24, 2009)
  • Plot:

Mum and Dad moved us to a school because they thought it was better. They moved house to keep us safer. They gave us swimming lessons and cycle helmets and self-defence classes and a balanced diet. They paid our phone bills so we'd never run out of credit in a crisis. They promised us Five grand on our twenty-first birthdays if we never smoked And still one of us died. What can i say?

Someone shoves a photo negative into Rowan's hands. She is distracted but, frankly, she has larger problems to worry about. Her brother is dead. Her father left. Her mother won't get out of bed. She has to take care of her younger sister. And keep it all together..... But Rowan is curious about the mysterious boy and negative. Who is He? Why did he give it to her? The mystery only deepens when the photo is developed and the inconceivable appears. Everything is about to change for Rowan.......Finally, something positive is in her life.



Tell me what you think??? I want to know
