The girl who... inspires
The girl who... has something to hide
People can't bring themselves to say what happened to her. They just describe her as 'the girl who... you know...'. But nobody really knows, no one sees the real Leah. Leah is the perfect survivor. She was seven years old when she saw her mother and sister killed by a troubled gang member. Her case hit the headlines and her bravery made her a national sweetheart: strong, courageous and forgiving.
But Leah is hiding a secret about their deaths.
And now, ten years later, all she can think of is revenge. When Leah's dad meets a new partner, stepsister Ellie moves in.
