Synopsis

Paradise by Joanna Nadin

This is an emotionally compelling teen novel from Joanna Nadin - twice nominated Queen of Teen - featuring romance and family mystery through three generations of mother and daughters. Can Billie find the truth? When sixteen year old Billie Paradise inherits her grandmother's house, it's a fairytale come true. She and her family move from their rented flat in London to start a new life by the sea. Maybe Billie can even find the father she's never met. But moving back to her mum's childhood home uncovers long-buried secrets and Billie soon discovers that people may die, but the past lives for ever. Joanna Nadin was nominated for the 2010 Queen of Teen award, in the company of Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy. She was also shortlisted for Queen of Teen 2008. This title is written by the author of the best-selling Rachel Riley series for teens and the previous teen standalone, Wonderland . This is intelligent, compelling commercial fiction for teen girls who will grow into fans of literary romance by writers such as Sadie Jones, Victoria Hislop and Jodie Picoult.

Reviews
