Her son is missing. Her daughter is looking for help in dangerous places. And Angie is fighting just to keep a roof over their heads.

How many contemporary social issues can you get into one book – and still have a brilliant read by the end of it? Well, this book is the answer… Susan Lewis has done it again. Gang violence, drugs, trafficking, poverty, politics…and so much more. There’s more to the title than we all like to think.

This is a ‘stick with it’ kind of book. I don’t mean that in a bad way though… The initial lines are gripping and will have you hooked and wanting to find out more. Then it calms down a little and I did find it hard to continue to be addicted to finishing this book for the first few chapters. Then it picked up again – and I guess that’s life. That’s what I loved about this book – it had a brilliant mix of ordinary life with the extraordinary. This book for certain, will strike a chord with many.
