“This debut, with a theme of systemic racism, is tense and touching.” Sunday Times
A debut mystery full of heart, as one girl searches for truth in the face of great opposition.
Zoe Washington has never met her father – he was sent to prison right before she was born. When she receives a letter from him on her twelfth birthday, it’s a huge surprise. Zoe’s mom has always told her that he’s a liar, a monster, but he sounds … nice.
Zoe starts to investigate, and the deeper she digs, the more she doubts her father’s conviction. Is he innocent? Or is he a liar?
