Hannah has been best friends with Joey forever. When Joey acquires a foster brother, Paul, and then falls in love with Hannah’s big brother, the dynamics of their relationship begin to change and Hannah finds it hard to adjust.
At the same time, she discovers that not only is Paul being bullied mercilessly at school because he is ‘different’, but it is her own brother who is doing the bullying.
When Paul goes missing, the police become involved and everyone’s secrets come out into the open.
This touching and funny story would be enjoyed by both boys and girls. Cassidy cleverly tackles a number of serious issues, which are particularly relevant to young people in a humorous, accessible and engaging novel.
