The main character of this debut novel, Ani FaNelli is largely unlikable for at least the first half of the book. As the true gripping story of her teenage years unravels the reader learns how Ani’s well put together facade can only hide her fear and heartache for so long. While a riveting page turner, this book also faces head on some very real and very terrifying issues that our youths, more and more often are having to confront. This book ends with a completely unexpected, yet hugely satisfying conclusion! ~ Reviewed by Tracy Davies

When Carmel disappears from a children’s festival Beth sets out on a painful and relentless mission to find her only child and bring her home. Set over the course of several years, this book speaks in alternating voices; from Beth’s head as well as from Carmel’s. Quietly tense, highly poignant and extremely well written! Highly recommended. ~ Reviewed by Tracy Davies
