'A Sydney family's picture-perfect life is upended in an unputdownable new novel from the bestselling author of The Mothers.
'What if the worst day of your life turns out to be the making of you?

Until, on her son Jamie's final day of high school, he fails to come home. Hospitalised by a coward's punch, Jamie has been the victim of a muck-up day celebration that went too far.
