Uncle Patrick died young. That's all Josh knows.

When Josh and his mother go to stay with his grandmother for the summer, he assumes it's going to be the worst summer of his life. That is until he finds a hidden attic and a collection of strange drawings by his uncle, Patrick, who died suddenly in his teens. Patrick has no grave. His name is never spoken.

As Josh explores his mother's home town and follows Patrick's footsteps he begins to uncover the dark truth his family has hidden for forty years . . .

With the truth hidden between two summers decades apart, Truth or Dare by Celia Rees is a page-turning story of shame, secrets and the unbreakable bond of family.

A compelling story in which the secrecy and shame of the past are shed to reveal a rather wonderful and utterly contemporary present.


Truth or Dare doesn't let up - and hits you with a final twist.
