This is a powerful story of Mary, a single teenage mother, living on a housing estate plagued with predatory abuse and prostitution, and Annie, an innocent girl whose ghostly presence links the central characters over two generations, bringing the events that led to her death, the loss of innocence and the unfolding story to a dramatic, thrilling conclusion.
The characterisation in the book is brilliant and entirely believable. From page one, I was completely drawn into the story and found the book difficult to put down.
This is a stunning first time novel
An intense, gripping and highly personal thriller, with a modern ghost
I found it hard to put down the book and the story very compelling.
