Waterstones Says

Former Waterstones Children’s Book Prize category winner Patrice Lawrence serves up a deftly constructed YA thriller centred on a missing girl and the eight clues which may, or may not, help her stepsister find her. 

Shortlisted for the YA Book Prize 2021

Shortlisted for the Jhalak Children’s & Young Adult Prize 2021

From the multi-award-winning author of Orangeboy, an addictive mystery that refuses to let you go long after you turn the final page. Can Becks piece the jigsaw together and find her sister before Silva loses herself?

Becks is into girls but didn't come out because she was never in. She lives with her mum, stepdad and eighteen-year-old Silva, her stepdad's daughter. Becks and Silva are opposites, but bond over their mutual obsession with K-pop.

When Becks' mum and stepdad go on honeymoon to Japan, Becks and Silva are left alone. Except, Silva disappears. Becks ventures into the forbidden territory of Silva's room and finds the first of eight clues that help her discover her sister's secret life.

Meanwhile, Silva is on a journey. A journey to make someone love her. He says he doesn't, but he's just joking. All she has to do is persuade him otherwise ...
