SynopsisWatcher by L.A. Weatherly
A dark and captivating story from an award- winning and internationally acclaimed author is given a brand new package. Sarah's mum walked out on her family seven years ago without explanation. Now she lives just a few miles away - but she refuses to see Sarah. Sarah is desperate to know why her mother left, and why she doesn't want to see her now, but mostly she just wants to make her pay for what she did - A tense, atmospheric page-turner from a top teen author. Particularly suitable for the relucatant, struggling and dyslexic teen.
'It's really nice how a book like Watcher can relate to kids who are going through the same thing,'
