Product description

A girl trying to forget. An old lady trying to remember. Just like toffee, this is tough, sweet and moreish! Who is Toffee? Runaway Allison hasn’t a clue. She’s just pretending to be her. She’s fled her home, and now she’s hiding out in the shed of an empty house. Except that the shed isn’t empty. An old woman, Marla, lives there. Marla has dementia, and she thinks Allison is Toffee – an old friend from her past. Allison doesn’t care. She’s used to hiding. So Toffee is who she becomes. After all, there are worse things. It means she has a place to stay. But as her bond with Marla grows, Allison starts to ask herself: where is home? What is a family? And, if she’s not Toffee, who is she?
