Shortlisted for the Independent Bookshop Week Book Award, Childrens category YA stars Sarah Crossan and Brian Conaghan join forces to break readers hearts in this contemporary story of star-crossd lovers. Jess would never have looked twice at Nicu if her friends hadnt left her in the lurch. Nicu is all big eyes and ill-fitting clothes, eager as a puppy, even when theyre picking up litter in the park for community service. Hes so not her type. Appearances matter to Jess. Shes got a lot to hide. Nicu thinks Jess is beautiful. His dad brought Nicu and his mum here for a better life, but now all they talk about is going back home to find Nicu a wife. The last thing Nicu wants is to get married. He wants to get educated, do better, stay here in England. But his dads fists are the most powerful force in Nicus life, and in the end, hell have to do what his dad wants. As Nicu and Jess get closer, their secrets come to the surface like bruises. The only safe place they have is with each other. But they cant be together, forever, and stay safe – can they? An extraordinary, high-impact, high-emotion collaboration between two stars of YA. Perfect for fans of Patrick Ness, Malorie Blackman, Rainbow Rowell and John Green.
