This refreshing, deeply affecting debut sparkles with prose as crisp as its Alpine backdrop. Its heroine Cara - grief-stricken after her best friend's death and navigating a new life in the Swiss mountains - will win the hearts of YA readers everywhere.
Up in the Alps, Cara's old life feels a million miles away. Nobody at Hope Hall knows her past. With secrets to keep, can Cara allow herself this chance to live again? New Year's Eve, San Francisco. The most promising party of the year ends in tragedy. Georgina is gone and nothing will bring her back. Nine months later, Cara's mother decides a Swiss boarding school will be the fresh start Cara needs. Up in the Alps, Cara's old life feels a million miles away. Nobody at Hope Hall knows her past - and she intends to keep it that way. Yet, as much as she keeps her distance, her new friends break down the walls she has so carefully built up - especially the offbeat, straight-talking Hector, who understands how she feels better than anyone. But the closer Cara grows to Hector, the more her old life slips away. Embracing life at Hope Hall means letting go of the past. With Georgina gone, how can Cara allow herself this second chance?
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"a debut that delves into what it means to be the one who lives through something terrible. "For a split second I feel euphoric. Maybe I won't survive this time." This atmospheric novel goes beyond a romance tale by also delving into the other friendships they experience and the complicated family dynamics each of them is dealing with. While these characters suffer, they never whine; this is a delicious read that will make readers eager to see what Nina de Pass does next." -- THE IRISH TIMES
