Summary

A teen boy falls in love with a girl who is trying to find out the truth behind her mother's death when she was a baby

Bailey is 17, mixed race, lives with his mum and dad in Hackney and spends all his time playing guitar or tending to his luscious ginger afro.

Indigo is 17 and newly returned to London, having grown up in the care system after being found by her mum's dead body as a toddler. All Indigo wants is to know who she really is.

When Bailey and Indigo meet at sixth form, sparks fly. But when Bailey becomes the target of a homeless man who seems to know more about Indigo than is normal, Bailey is forced to make a choice he should never have to make.

A life-affirming story about falling in love and everyone's need to belong.

NOTE: Contains strong language, discussion of drug abuse and sexual references.

YA Book Prize shortlist 2018

Book of the week

Tough themes are handled deftly & the writing is excellent but it's the wonderful, memorable characters at the heart of this love story that make it so riveting. Very good.
