Shortlisted for the 2017 Children's Book Council of Australia Awards
Frankie Vega is angry.
Just ask the guy whose nose she broke.
Or the cop investigating the burglary she witnessed, or her cheating ex-boyfriend or her aunt who's tired of giving second chances...
When a kid shows up claiming to be Frankie's half brother, it opens the door to a past she doesn't want to remember.
And when that kid goes missing, the only person willing to help is a boy with stupidly blue eyes ...... and secrets of his own.
Frankie's search for the truth might change her life, or cost her everything.
'Great dialogue and strongly paced. Frankie's a gutsy character with a lot of heart.' - Melina MarchettaAbout the Author
