Product description

Shelby Jane Cooper is seventeen, pretty and quiet. It’s just Shelby and her mom, Shaylene: a court stenographer who wears pyjama jeans, stitches tapestry, eats ice-cream for dinner and likes to keep Shelby safe. So safe she barely goes out. So safe she doesn’t even go to school. But when Shelby gets knocked down by a car, it’s not just her leg that shatters. Her whole world cracks. Mom turns up to collect her and drives off into the night. Now they’re on a road trip like two criminals on the run – like Thelma and Louise or Bonnie and Clyde. Who is Shelby Jane Cooper? If Mom has lied to her, who can she actually trust?

  • New from the author of In Darkness and Hostage Three
