A totally gripping, roller-coaster of a story about family secrets, relationships and deceit - Jodi Picoult for teens. A wonderfully engaging debut novel from a talented young author who won the 2008 SCBWI Undiscovered Voices competition.

 



Synopsis

Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale

How can you face your future when your past it a lie? When Rosie Kenning's mother, Trudie, dies from Huntingdon's disease, her whole world falls apart. Not only does Rosie desperately miss her mum, but now she has to face the fact that she could have inherited the fatal illness herself. Until she discovers that Trudie wasn't her biological mother at all ...Rosie is stunned. Can this be true? Is she grieving for a mother who wasn't even hers to lose? And if Trudie wasn't her mother, who is? But as Rosie delves into her past to discover who she really is, she is faced with a heart-breaking dilemma - to continue living a lie, or to reveal a truth that will shatter the lives of everyone around her...


Reviews

"Someone Else's Life has a plot which shocks you right to the end. It's a compelling story of family ties tested to breaking point. Katie Dale explores moral dilemmas which haunt the reader, long after they've finished reading. The characters grab your emotions, making you angry, heartbroken and - ultimately - hopeful." Keren David, author of Carnegie nominated When I was Joe

 

"riveting debut about families, relationships and long-buried secrets. A really gripping family drama that reads like Jodi Picoult for teens." Children's Bookseller - highlighted in "ones to watch"

 

"Sensationally good, almost too good for young adults. Brilliant." Books Monthly

"..for me, Someone Else's Life is very truthful.. a tremendously promising debut and if you enjoy reading intense, intimate books by people like Sarah Dessen and Julia Green, you shouldn't miss it." The Bookbag.co.uk

 

"..a warm, poignant novel with a unique story-line that is sure to touch your heart and stay in its treasured place on your bookshelf for years to come." Chicklish
