We Are Young

By Cat Clarke

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

An unforgettable story from bestselling author of Girlhood. Packed with emotional suspense, We Are Young is perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult, Megan Abbott and Courtney Summers

'Hard-hitting, heartbreaking and hopeful, We Are Young is a must read.' SARAH CROSSAN

It starts with a wedding. And a car crash.

On the same night Evan's mother marries local radio DJ 'Breakfast Tim', Evan's brand-new step-brother Lewis is found unconscious and terribly injured, the only survivor of a horrific car crash.

A media storm erupts, with the finger of blame pointed firmly at loner stoner Lewis. Everyone else seems to think the crash was drugs-related, but Evan isn't buying it. With the help of her journalist dad, Harry, she decides to find out what really happened that night.

As Evan delves deeper into the lives of the three teenagers who died in the crash, she uncovers some disturbing truths and a secret that threatens to tear her family - and the community - apart.

Raw and riveting, heartbreaking and hopeful: an unforgettable story from the author of Girlhood.
