From the author of the Richard and Judy Book Club Pick No and Me. Adults are as lost as the children they should be protecting, in this compelling exploration of the destructive secrets and loyalties that are kept behind closed doors `Packs a hefty emotional punch. It reminded me of Leila Slimani's terrific Lullaby' Bookseller `Narrated with punch and pace. You're kept reading helplessly to the desperate cliffhanger finish' Daily Mail Thirteen-year-old Theo and his friend Mathis have a secret. Their teacher, Helene, suspects something is not right with Theo and becomes obsessed with rescuing him, casting aside her professionalism to the point of no return. Cecile, mother of Mathis, discovers something horrifying on her husband's computer that makes her question whether she has ever truly known him. Respectable facades are peeled away as the four stories wind tighter and tighter together, pulling into a lean and darkly gripping novel of loneliness, lies and loyalties.
