Lauren Ramsey is a teacher whose mantra is to never let a child fall through the cracks. But Lauren is so concerned about the welfare of a little boy in her kindegarten class she doesn't realize her own daughter, Skye, needs help. The only person who seems to listen to 14-year-old Skye is Tamara Thompson, the manager of her favorite clothes shop. Tamara remembers all too vividly what it's like to be a troubled teen. Lauren, Tamara and Skye are all searching for a happier future, but finding it may lie in resolving secrets from their pasts.

Beautifully written, Fleur McDonald has shown a depth of understanding about a very topical issue bringing a very emotional component of modern history, often kept locked away within families, into the light." —Bluewolf Reviews
