London - the present
Holly Smith has never fitted in. Adopted when just a few months old, she's always felt she was someone with no history. All she has is the address of where she was born - 32B Gambier Terrace, Liverpool. When Holly discovers that the flat is available to rent, she travels north and moves in. And in the very same flat, under the floorboards, she finds a biscuit tin full of yellowing papers. Could these papers be the key to her past?
Liverpool - 1981
Fifteen-year-old Darren is negotiating life with his errant mother and the younger brother he is raising. When the Toxteth Riots explode around him, Darren finds himself with a moral dilemma that will have consequences for the rest of his life.
Moving between the past and the present, Darren and Holly's lives become intertwined. Will finding Darren give Holly the answers she craves? Or will she always feel like the girl who just appeared?

I really liked this. More twists and turns than a very windy, twisty snake. Lots of great characters, well rounded and well built with lots of empathy. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Carol

Can't understand all the 5 star reviews. Absurd characters in a totally unrealistic plot which verged on the ridiculous. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mme T
Really enjoyed this book, funny and very gritty in parts. Very much enjoyed the chapters set in the 80's. Would like to read more Jonathan Harvey books.Published 1 month ago by GC
Starts well, but becomes irritating when Darren appears. Living in Liverpool and fond of the way people speak, I am irritated by the over use of the Liverpool accent. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
