Publisher Description

Three teenage girls from very different backgrounds find themselves sharing a hospital ward. When they witness a crime in the park below their window, they bond over trying to solve the crime and each one undergoes a profound change.

A beautiful coming-of-age story about identity, expectation, class, justice, society, fairness, and, above all, kindness.

'Fresh insights into friendship and family are spun through tangents into chance and randomness ... and music and its power to trigger memory and give a rhythm and pace to life. Injured Evie, in particular, learns how to grow and walk away stronger.' - Weekend Australian

'Such a richly delicious read and I wanted it never to end ... I am a true fan' - Naomi Shihab Nye

**Contains BONUS extract from Jane Godwin's newest novel, WHEN RAIN TURNS TO SNOW**

Wow. Just...wow.

I’m glad I read this book. It’s not my favourite book, but it’s stunning. It sends a powerful message of loss and belonging and what it means to be happy. There isn’t even a word for how I felt when I finished this book. No other book has made me feel this way before. It’s astounding. Wow. That’s all I can really say.
