What to Read After… Look Up! 20/09/21
Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books
The months before Sara's trial seem to drag, especially as this whole thing is a huge mistake. Sure, Emma killed herself but that's not Sara's fault. Emma was a boyfriend-stealing tramp who deserved everything she got and now Sara's the one being made to suffer.
As Sara's summer of waiting crawls by, she is forced to relive and reconsider the tragic events of recent months and acknowledge the role she may have played.
This compulsive, heartrending drama is very far from any familiar bully/victim, good/evil story. By allowing Sara to examine and justify her own feelings and actions, the complexity, intensity and vulnerability of teenage relationships is laid bare.
Provocative and thought-provoking, this book is sure to divide readers but will certainly get them talking.
