Children can be very, very cruel
When they were ten everybody wanted to be Serena's friend, to find themselves one of the inner circle. But doing so meant proving your worth, and doing that often had consequences it's not nice to think about - not even thirty-five years later.
Karen Rothwell is randomly reminded of an incident in her childhood which just as suddenly becomes an obsession. It takes her on a journey into a land of secrets and lies; it means finding that gang of girls from Marsh Green Junior School and most importantly of all finding Serena Whinn.

"Although the story unfolds one painful layer at a time in 2015, the reader is kept second-guessing continuously as snippets from 1996 rise to the surface. The characters are depicted brilliantly and are truly believable." --Crime Review
