When Alex meets Kate the attraction is instant.
Alex is funny, good-looking, and a little shy - everything that Kate wants in a boyfriend.
Alex can't help falling for Kate, who is pretty, charming and maybe just a little naive...
But one of them is hiding an unbelievable secret, and as their love blossoms, it threatens to ruin not just their relationship, but their lives...
Cat Clarke is the bestselling, award-winning author of six YA novels. She was born in Zambia and brought up in Edinburgh and Yorkshire, which has given her an accent that tends to confuse people. She lives in Edinburgh with her partner, two ninja cats and two decidedly non-ninja cocker spaniels.
