"There are two ways to keep a secret: saying nothing or telling a lie . . ."
Grace and Ellie find themselves in a completely new life when their mum suddenly moves them away from their bullying father. Talkative, story-spinning Ellie invents a whole new glamorous backstory for herself and becomes the star of the school play; while thoughtful, silent Grace expresses herself through her music and finds a boyfriend. The future seems better, brighter, more exciting. But as their past threatens to catch up with them, how long can silence and lies keep their dark secret safe?
