July 2015 Book of the Month Sophie McKenzie is the master of psychological thrillers for teens, and this is a typically gripping page-turner. Everything Evie Brown has put her trust in is suddenly revealed to be false, even her parents have been lying to her. Bewildered and confused she chooses to go on a retreat for troubled teens, far away from her family. On the remote island of Lightsea however, her grasp on reality seems threatened even more dangerously. Part ghost story, party mystery, the teen compulsion to work out who you are, and what you count for, is at the heart of this engrossing novel. For many, it will be a read-in-one-sitting book. ~ Andrea Reece
A brand new title from bestselling, award-winning author, Sophie McKenzie.
The shocking reality behind a £10 million inheritance turns Evie Brown's world on its head. Unable to find out the truth from her parents, Evie ends up on the mysterious island of Lightsea, where her desire for answers leads her towards a series of revelations that threaten everything she holds dear ...including her life.
Once again, McKenzie expertly crafts thrilling twists and turns, keeping the reader gripped right up to the story’s dramatic conclusion. All My Secrets is a contemporary twist on the classic adventure story, with mobile phones and con-artists taking the place of treasure maps and smugglers.
The fictional Scottish island of Lightsea was inspired by the author’s own visit to the Isle of Skye as a teenager. Beguiled by the wildness and beauty of Skye’s coastline, the romance and drama of the Celtic landscape has stayed with her some thirty years later providing the inspiration for the setting of her 24th novel.
