ABOUT: It’s been over a year since that night and for Amani, the details are becoming a blur. All she knows for sure is she doesn’t want to end up like her parents. So, when she moves to a new city, she has to start all over again. Amani wants to focus on her new life, but when a face from the past comes back, she has to remember everything she has tried to forget.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Annabelle Steele is a primary school teacher in Manchester. She’s been writing poetry and YA and children’s fiction since her own primary school days. Her books explore mental health, relationships and the realities of being part of a minority group living in the UK. Her writing includes Black protagonists and she recognises that there are still not enough positive Black characters in bookshops for children and teens to relate to. She’s passionate about supporting those struggling with mental health and in 2017 published an adult colouring book called Positivity Ink with all proceeds going to MIND.
