The Secrets We Keep (#1)

Author(s): Nova Weetman

Middle Fiction (Reading Age 10-13 years)

A beautifully written and insightful new novel sensitively uncovering the effects of trauma on the mind of an eleven-year-old girl. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a house burn, but it’s not like anything else ...

Clem Timmins has lost it all - her house, possessions and clothes. Now living in a tiny flat with her dad, she has to go to a new school far from what she knows. On her first day, Clem meets Ellie. To fit in, Clem reveals a secret and immediately regrets sharing too much with her new friend. How can Clem face everything in her life when all she wants to do is run away?

This is a Beachside Bookshop favourite - Nova Weetman is a talented Aussie author of children and YA books, and this shines through in her creation of Clem who is easy to relate to for primary readers, and will be loved by adult readers
