Seventeen-year-old Anna is running into the night. Fleeing her boyfriend, her mother, and everything she has known.

She is travelling into the country, to the land and the grandparents she has never met, looking for answers to questions that have never been asked.

For every family has secrets.

But some secrets - once laid bare - can never be forgiven.

A dark, deeply compelling, coming-of-age YA novel from the author of As Stars Fall.
