May 2012 Debut of the Month.
Shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger 2012.
CWA Judges' comment: “Listed as a young adult novel, this book has a much wider appeal. Byrne perfectly evokes the voice of 17-year-old Emily in this novel of guilt, identity and vengeance.”
The Lovereading view...
This gripping, provoking and emotional debut, written from the perspective of a troubled young girl in a young offenders institute awaiting trial for a vicious crime, is very hard to stop reading once you start. Hatred and love, infamy and identity, revenge and redemption are all explored with powerful yet lyrical writing.

Heart-shaped Bruise by Tanya Byrne
They say I'm evil. The police. The newspapers. The girls from school who sigh on the six o'clock news and say they always knew there was something not quite right about me. And everyone believes it. Including you. But you don't know. You don't know who I used to be. Who I could have been.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever shake off my mistakes or if I'll just carry them around with me forever like a bunch of red balloons Awaiting trial at Archway Young Offenders Institution, Emily Koll is going to tell her side of the story for the first time. Heart-Shaped Bruise is a compulsive and moving novel about infamy, identity and how far a person might go to seek revenge.
'Intriguing and compelling - a very accomplished debut'
Sophie Hannah, bestselling crime fiction author
