Sarah Carlson’s powerful YA debut; set in post-conflict
Belfast (Northern Ireland), alternating between two
teenagers, both trying to understand their past and preserve
their future. Seventeen-year-olds, Fiona and Danny must

After chance brings Fiona and Danny together, their love of

from their families unites them. Danny and Fiona must help
one another overcome the burden of their parents’ pasts. But
one ugly truth might shatter what they have….
