From the author of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize 2021 shortlisted And the Stars Were Burning Brightly comes a powerful and thought-provoking new YA novel in which a stabbing outside a Manchester shopping centre unexpectedly brings together three teens from very different backgrounds.
A powerful coming-of-age story about chance encounters, injustice and how the choices that we make can completely change our future. The second YA novel from the critically acclaimed Danielle Jawando, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas, Gayle Foreman, Jennifer Niven and Nikesh Shukla.
When fourteen-year-old Shaq is stabbed outside of a busy shopping centre in Manchester, three teenagers from very different walks of life are unexpectedly brought together.
