The Lovereading4Kids comment
This gripping family story is told in the two voices of Ellie and Grace, two sisters whose life takes a dramatic turn when their mum plucks up the courage to leave their violent father. How chatterbox Ellie and silent Grace find new lives – and new happiness - for themselves is deftly unravelled in a rollercoaster journey that embraces friendships, family and finding yourself.
