Summary

A girl tries to escape the opressively strict and abusive family life she experiences dominated by her alcoholic father.

Amber is trapped - by her father's rules, by his expectations, by her own fears.

Now she's ready to fight - for her mother, for her sister, for herself.

Freedom always comes at a price.

NOTE: Contains scenes of domestic violence and alcoholism.

Book of the week

Totally immersive & fast-paced verse novel with a likeable but flawed heroine who is caught between her own dreams and the expectations of her family.  Powerful, shocking but ultimately hopeful, this is an arresting and impressive debut.
