An honest, poignant debut…
Mack’s deeply moving debut is marked by a cleverly-constructed storyline and elegant prose that will draw readers into its teen protagonists’ world. After years of bullying, Isabel Johnson is determined to start her first year of Sixth Form differently. But facing her malevolent bullies is not easy until the troubled Joshua Bugg steps in to help. As the teens embark on a path of friendship, terrible secrets of Joshua’s life come to surface, changing their lives forever. Mack gradually unravels Joshua’s story, giving readers fair insights into how his relationship with Isabel advanced and how it begins to affect his unsavory home situation and the brothers’ lives. The heart wrenching portrayal of the protagonists’ lives is meant to make readers feel big things, and they will: the story brims with emotion as Mack’s broken characters go through heartache and grief while struggling to find a way to live. Mature YA reads will be rewarded.
