From the author of Captive comes a tense, gripping story of secrets, sisterhood and running away
Are you still a sister, if one of you is missing?Â Â
Sixteen-year-old Lil’s heart was broken when her sister Mella disappeared.Â There’s been no trace or sighting of her since she vanished, so when Lil sees a girl lying in the road near her house she thinks for a heart-stopping moment that it’s Mella. The girl is injured and disorientated and Lil has no choice but to take her home. But something’s not right? The girl claims she’s from a peaceful community called The Sisterhood of the Light, but why then does she have strange marks down her arms, and what – or who – is she running from?
Could she hold the key to Mella’s disappearance?
And what happens if the Sisterhood is unwilling to let its daughters go?Â
