Fourteen-year-old Prue and her sister Grace have been educated at home by their controlling, super-strict father all their lives. Forced to wear Mum's odd hand-made garments and forbidden from reading teenage magazines, they know they're very different to 'normal' girls - but when Dad has a stroke and ends up in hospital, unable to move or speak, Prue suddenly discovers what it's like to have a little freedom.
Sent to a real school for the first time, Prue struggles to fit in. The only person she can talk to is her kindly, young - and handsome - art teacher, Rax. They quickly bond, and Prue feels more and more drawn to him. As her feelings grow stronger, she begins to realise that he might feel the same way about her. But nothing could ever happen between them - could it?
WOW this book is amazing i love it !!!
The book was good, and most times i couldn't put it down and others i had to stop reading it; because i couldn't bear to find out what the outcome of Prue's actions were.
Intriguing to continuously read more!!!! Loved it!
This was my favourite childhood book. A lot of people are sensitive nowadays, but this book really does need a next storyline because I want to know what happens with Prudence & Rax. I wished the story carried on, but I want to know Prudence future, and if she still remembers Rax, or found somebody else. I really was hoping they had a happy ending!!!!!
