Summary

Dani hasn't had an easy life. She's made some bad choices, and now she's paying the ultimate price: prison.

With her young daughter, Bethany, growing up in foster care, Dani is determined to be free and reunited with her. There's only one problem: Dani can't stay out of trouble.

Dani's new cellmate, Martha, is quiet and unassuming. There's something about her that doesn't add up. When Martha offers Dani one last chance at freedom, she doesn't hesitate.

Everything she wants is on the outside, but Dani is stuck on the inside. Is it possible to break out when everyone is trying to keep you in?

Critic reviews

"Hard to believe it's a debut! It's really accomplished and the main character was totally sympathetic with a refreshing and authentic voice that just carried me through the story. I couldn't put it down - that voice, honest, flawed and yet utterly compelling." (Jenny Blackhurst)

Superb

I loved this book for several reasons. It’s a fascinating insight into life in a UK women’s prison - I certainly haven’t read anything from this perspective before. It’s a gripping storyline with twists and turns that keep you guessing throughout. But most importantly, the character of Danni is brilliantly written, so real and convincing that I cared desperately what would happen to her. It’s a real achievement to have brought such an authentic, complex and engaging character to life. Thoroughly recommended.
