Tapping into childhood friendships with the utmost credibility, Wilson crafts a moving and relatable story of the bond between two girls from different backgrounds peppered with unforgettable characters and memorable moments.
"Then she grinned. I grinned. It was just as if we knew each other."
India lives in a HUGE house, but hardly gets any attention from her parents. She can't stand her mum, and though she absolutely adores her dad, he hasn't had much time for her lately. Feeling lonely, she seeks solace in her journal, inspired by her heroine Anne Frank.
Treasure lives on the local council estate, taken in by her loving and capable grandmother. She's completely devoted to her nan but is haunted by the fear of her violent stepdad.
A chance meeting sparks a great friendship between the girls, who become a bright spot in each other's lives.
When Treasure has to run away to avoid her stepfather, India comes up with a hiding place. She hasn't got a real secret annexe, but she has got a hidden attic...
