Emotive, sometimes shocking story (The Sunday Times )
Yes, yes, yes! God, this sounds absolutely wonderful (Bidisha, The Guardian )
Stunning, shocking, sad and incredibly touching. We are pretty sure you will read it in one sitting then want to share the book with someone else (LoveReading )
We read this in one sitting. ***** (Teen Now )
'They tried to make me go to my sister's funeral today. In the end I'd had to give in ... I'd been walking in her shadow for sixteen years and I liked its cool darkness. It was a good place to hide.'
How would you feel if your twin sister died suddenly? Particularly if she was the beautiful one and you were horribly disfigured.
And how would it feel to be alone now if you and your sister were the only ones to know the truth about what takes place behind closed doors at home?
And what would you do if it was your parents who brought danger and terror into your life? Would you dare reveal how your sister died?
And would you be brave enough to find an escape of your own?
Black Heart Blue is a powerful novel about the domestic horrors that can unfold within a small community - and one girl's quest to stand up for the truth.
