A shocking story about a fifteen-year-old girl and the man who took advantage of her
“You might as well know from the start, I’m not going to tell on him and I don’t care how much trouble I get in. It’s not like it could get any worse than it already is.
I can’t. Don’t ask me why, I just can’t.”
When Nina finds out that her fifteen-year-old daughter, Scarlett, is pregnant, her world falls apart.
Because Scarlet won’t tell anyone who the father is. And Nina is scared that the answer will destroy everything.
As the suspects mount – from Scarlett’s teacher to Nina’s new husband of less than a year – Nina searches for the truth: no matter what the cost.

About the author
Amanda Brooke lives in Liverpool with her daughter, Jessica, two cats and a laptop within easy reach. Her debut novel, Yesterday’s Sun, was a Richard and Judy Book Club pick in spring 2012.
I have read three of Amanda Brooke books so far and I enjoyed each one some of the turn pages were predictable but I could not wait to turn that page
I kept reading despite the lacklustre writing. Kept hoping for some big twist. The narrative failed to ignite any intrigue and there were no big mysteries. Everything you expected to happen, did. Extremely disappointed with the transparency from a writer with such hype.
