The gripping new YA novel from Sue Divin, the acclaimed and Carnegie shortlisted author of Guard Your Heart.
Northern Ireland. 2019.
Tara has been raised by her mam and nan in Derry City. Faith lives in rural Armagh.
Their lives on opposite sides of a political divide couldn’t be more different. Until they come face-to-face with each other and are shocked to discover they look almost identical. Are they connected?
In searching for the truth about their own identities, the teenagers uncover more than they bargained for.
But what if finding out who you truly are means undermining everything you’ve ever known?
A compelling, original story that will make you laugh, cry, and laugh til you cry.
Michelle Gallen, on Truth Be Told
Profoundly powerful, subtle and effective, this superb debut evokes the deep-rooted mistrust lingering in the wake of the Troubles, as well as a new, tentative flowering of hope and love.
