Out of the Shadows by Sue Hines

After her mother's sudden death, Ro now lives with her mother's partner Deb. Ro is convinced that her family is unlike anyone else's and is determined that no one at her new school will get close enough to find out. Then Jodie arrives, with a secret of her own. The two girls are drawn together, but when Jodie's feelings for Ro start to tip into something different, the rules of friendship are stretched to the limit.
