The Summer of Telling Tales

Written by Laura Summers

The Summer of Telling Tales Synopsis

Grace and Ellie find themselves in a completely new life when their mum suddenly moves them away from their bullying father. Talkative, story-spinning Ellie invents a whole new glamorous backstory for herself and becomes the star of the school play; while thoughtful, silent Grace expresses herself through her music and finds a boyfriend. The future seems better, brighter, more exciting. But as their past threatens to catch up with them, how long can silence and lies keep their dark secret safe?

The Summer of Telling Tales Press Reviews

'I loved The Summer of Telling Tales - it's truly gripping and you care desperately about both sisters.' Jacqueline Wilson 'Fans of Cathy Cassidy will love this absorbing tale of families and loyalty.' The Bookseller 'I thoroughly enjoyed this perceptive, pacy story ... With strong, engaging characters and a vivid school setting, this novel combines some very dramatic moments with everyday friendship and romance.' Miriam Halahmy
