The hugely anticipated sixth novel from the Carnegie Medal-winning author Meg Rosoff. Mila is on a mission: a mission to find her father’s best friend, Matthew, who has gone missing. Though only twelve years old, Mila’s razor-sharp perception means that she sees clues that no adult sees: she detects emotions buried deep and unlocks secrets long-held. Characteristically tightly wrought, Rosoff captures perfectly the emotions of a girl teetering on the edge of adulthood. As Mila catches glimpses of an adult world shrouded in darkness and intrigue, luckily for her, she also encounters a giant Easter egg, a boy called Jake and a faithful friend in the form of a dog called Honey.
