Description

From the author of JOE ALL ALONE – a BAFTA winning and Emmy nominated CBBC series.

A compelling story for 10+ readers about falling in with the wrong crowd, and standing up for what you believe in.

How far would you go to fit in?

When I think of all the people I ever wanted to be, I’m pretty sure this isn’t one of them…

Asha Wright has it all – a barrister mum, a place at a private school, and big dreams of a life where she’s a real Somebody. But when her mum gets cancer, Asha’s fairytale fades and she finds herself back in Peckham, at a tough new school with new teachers, new kids . . . and Angel Jones, queen bee.

Angel is everything Asha wants to be – beautiful, brash and, above all, brave. But being one of the gang comes at a cost, and Asha is forced to play a dangerous game of Truth or Dare. Where will it end?

Publisher Review

This is an insightful, gripping, character-driven novel about peer pressure and the conflict between wanting to fit in and standing up for yourself ... As the novel builds to a tense, emotional climax, you'll be on the edge of your seat willing Asha to do the right thing. -- Joanne Owen * LoveReading4Kids *
