Waterstones Says

An explosive verse novel centred on the coming-of-age of a young girl fighting against her own self-doubt and the strict expectations of her father.

Shortlisted for the The CILIP Carnegie Medal 2021

I am restless, my feet need to fly.

Amber is trapped - by her father's rules, by his expectations, by her own fears. Now she's ready to fight - for her mother, for her sister, for herself. Freedom always comes at a price.

“Brilliantly powerful verse novel”

From the first page, Mann’s writing had utterly hooked me into Amber’s story. The verse almost pulses with such emotion and seethes with scarcely contained anger from the first line.
