One of our Books of the Year 2013 & April 2013 Debut of the Month A stunning, heart-stopping novel from the author of the critically acclaimed Skin Deep. Holly is a new girl at a new school in a new home with a new life and identity. The only thing that's not new is her family who wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for Holly. Lonely and angry Holly reaches out to friends new and old, but one wrong move will put all their lives in danger...
Laura Jarratt's first novel, Skin Deep, has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.

By Any Other Name by Laura Jarratt
'Nobody can know the truth - her life depends on it. I picked up the book and thumbed through the pages. Names in alphabetical order, names with meanings, names I knew, names I'd never heard of. How to pick? Nothing that would stand out, nothing that would link me to the past - those were the instructions. The past. As if everything that had gone before this moment was buried already'...... Holly is fifteen years old, but she's only been Holly for a matter of months. Because of something that happened, she and her family have had to enter witness protection and have all assumed new identities. All, that is, except her sister Katie, who is autistic. Starting at a new school mid-term is hard enough at the best of times, and Holly has no clue who she is any more.
