An intriguing, compelling, and moving new novel from the award-winning author of Finding Violet Park.
When the good-looking boy with the American accent presses the dropped negative into Rowan's hand, she's sure it's all a big mistake. But the next moment, he's gone, lost in the crowd of bustling shoppers. And she can't afford to lose her place in the checkout queue – after all, if she doesn't take the groceries home, nobody else will.
Rowan has more responsibilities than most girls her age. These days, she pretty much looks after her little sister single-handedly – which doesn't leave much time for friends or fun. So when she finds out that Bee from school saw the whole thing, it piques her curiosity. Who was the boy? Why was he so insistent that the negative belonged to Rowan?
