A searing look at the effects of post traumatic stress on soldiers and their families, seen through the eyes of teenage Hayley. Stunning, hard-hitting fiction from an award-winning writer.

Synopsis

The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson

Hayley is struggling - struggling to make sure her ex-army dad shows up to work, struggling to avoid her stepmother, struggling not to fall in love with Finn, who really seems to get her. Struggling to forget the past. But some memories run too deep, and soon the cracks start to show.
