This novel will open your eyes

and break your heart.

It is the story of Emma’s two brothers:

the one who died five years ago,

and the one who left home on the day of the funeral and never came back.

It is the story of Emma’s parents,

who have been keeping the truth from her, and from each other.

It is the story of Emma herself,

caught in the middle and trying to work out how everything fell apart.

It is a story you will want to talk about

and one you will never forget.
