When Lizzie and Bee meet on a beach during their summer holiday, it feels as if they were always meant to be friends. Escaping their parents and exploring, everything seems perfect in the hot summer sun. But as the girls grow closer, strange questions rise to the surface. Is Lizzie really an only child? Why has Bee’s dad disappeared? And why, as the holiday ends, are the two girls forbidden from seeing one another again? Could one dark secret from the past hold the answer? Could one fateful night keep these friends apart – forever?
From the author of Butterfly Summer comes this powerful story of a new friendship, a terrible tragedy and a long-buried lie.
