Just remember to breathe.
Alex is sinking. Slowly but surely, she's cut herself off from everything but her one true love - drink. Until she's forced to write a piece about a coma ward, where she meets Amy.
Amy is lost. When she was fifteen, she was attacked and left for dead in a park. Her attacker was never found. Since then, she has drifted in a lonely, timeless place. She's as good as dead, but not even her doctors are sure how much she understands.
Alex and Amy grew up in the same suburbs, played the same music, flirted with the same boys. And as Alex begins to investigate the attack, she opens the door to the same danger that has left Amy in a coma...

The crippling alcoholism of freelance journalist Alex Dale, the heroine of British author Seddon's impressive first novel, has cost her nearly everything her husband, a baby, and her job. Her current assignment writing about health issues takes her to the neuro-disability ward at Tunbridge Wells Royal Infirmary, which treats patients in long-term comas. New research shows that some patients, while unable to communicate outwardly, are still able to communicate using brain scans. Alex becomes interested in one patient in particular, Amy Stevenson, who was brutally attacked at age 15, in 1995, and has been in a coma for the 15 years since trapped inside her body, but unable to tell her story. Alex becomes determined to solve the mystery behind Amy's attack, convinced that breaking this story will resurrect her journalism career. Told from alternating perspectives and alternating decades, this gripping thriller about family and redemption will keep readers engaged to the very end.

Fabulous read, keen to read more by Holly Seddon now!
An uncanny ability to put you right inside each main character, describing the alcoholic thirst that only those of us who have been there can really understand, leading us from suspect to suspect in a page turning frenzy, I really enjoyed this read.
Thought provoking and skill fully written. Had me unable to put down.
