Summary

The heart-rending and inspiring novel from the critically acclaimed author of Not If I See You First.

How can you have a future if you can't accept your past?

Mel Hannigan doesn't have it easy. Mourning the death of her firework of a brother, trying to fit back into a school she's been conspicuously absent from and struggling to deal with the loss of three friendships that used to mean everything. Struggling to deal with a condition that not even her closest friends know about.

So Mel tries to lock away her heart, to numb the highs and lows, to live quietly without hope - but also without pain. Until someone new shows her that it can be worth taking a risk, that opening up to life is what can make it glorious....

And that maybe Mel can discover a tragic kind of wonderful of her very own.
