A gritty, urban YA crime thriller from the acclaimed adult author Catherine Sampson.
""Tense, funny and gripping, this is both an eye-opener and a heart-wringer in its depiction of the underclasse. Sarah is less foul-mouthed than she would be in reality, but she is a strong, brave and true heroine who would make Jacqueline Wilson's creations look like Noddy."" The Times
This is the sort of subject matter that we desperately need our novelists to tackle, although for those who care more about whether a novel is good rather than whether it is necessary, I should add that it is ingenious, gripping and funny."" The Telegraph
""A fantastic, intense crime thriller with an unreliable narrator. It's about more than murder: it's about failing families, social class, drugs, sex abuse, failing interventions, fear, grief and loneliness. It's an electric read and a fantastic YA debut. Highly recommended."" The Bookbag
Sarah aka Carnaby has a tough life, but it suddenly gets a whole lot tougher when her mother is found murdered, her sister goes into labour and her new baby nephew is threatened with being taken into care. Sarah doesn't remember finding her mother's body, but she does remember hearing about other murders on the estate where they live. Is there a connection - and can Sarah find out what is going on, without putting herself and her family in even more danger?
