I loved the prequel - The Secrets We Keep - so I was so happy to hear what Clem was up to now!

I read this because I love Nova's work, and also to read something that my 13 year old has read and enjoyed. I can see why this book appeals to a 13 year old. The characters are so real and so relatable that I can hardly believe Clem is NOT a real person.

Highly recommended!
