AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the moment he hears her voice over the fence, Matt Sherman knows he has to meet the twins' cousin, Monica Bloom. She's just flown in from Dublin ready for the start of school, but not at all ready, as it turns out, for what the year holds.

'A scandal at Matt's father's work plays itself out in the media. Matt feels his family changing, his life changing, the certainties of his world slipping away. Meanwhile, Monica Bloom finds trouble of her own, and Matt finds that he can't stop thinking about her.' (Publisher's blurb)
