AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dylan Kane has liked Kirsty for a long time, but he has only just found out the secret that she and her brother Tim are keeping from everyone else in school. Every second Sunday their stepfather, Ian, returns their little sister home. And every second Sunday turns into a nightmare for the family as he bullies them all into terrified submission.

'Tim is becoming increasingly withdrawn, and Kirsty is growing more and more worried about her little sister and her mother, who is on the verge of a breakdown. As Dylan is drawn into the maelstrom of emotion, he becomes determined to help get rid of Ian for good no matter what it takes.' (Publisher's blurb)
