A stunning new novel from Carnegie-shortlisted author Sarah Crossan that explores the bond between daughters and mothers, forgiveness, and the healing power of words.
     When Apple's mother returns after eleven years of absence, Apple feels almost whole again. In order to heal completely, her mother will have to answer one burning question: Why did she abandon her? But just like the stormy Christmas Eve when she left, her mother's homecoming is bittersweet. It's only when Apple meets her younger sister, Rain--someone more lost than she is-- that she begins to see things for how they really are, allowing Apple to discover something that might help her to feel truly whole again.
     From the author of the acclaimed The Weight of Water comes a beautifully-crafted, moving novel about family, betrayal, and the ultimate path to healing.

Apple's mother left her with her Nana 11 years ago, but now she's back. Apple is so, so happy, but is the mother she's built up in her imagination anything like the real thing? Very well written, easy to read, but leaves you thinking about people and life and what you'd like to be like. Recommend for 11 plus.
