Courageous, inspired, bleakly comic, extreme candour' Guardian 'Hodge pours heartbreak and love into the pages of a book that never pretends to know the answers, and is all the better for it' Sunday Times 'By turns painful and joyful, this beautiful book has plenty of poignant lessons to teach us about grief and love' Cosmopolitan _ Two sisters. One shattered childhood . . . Seven-year-old Gavanndra Hodge's life is a precarious place. Her father is a hairdresser and drug dealer to Chelsea's most decadent inhabitants; her mother an alcoholic ex-model. So, it is up to Gavanndra to keep her little sister Candy safe. But when Candy dies suddenly on holiday aged nine, Gavanndra's family, already so fragile and damaged, implodes. Now a mother herself, and with only memories of Candy's awful final moments, Gavanndra embarks on a journey to write her way back to the little girl whose death tore her family apart.

It is a joyous and compelling account of the strength of the love between sisters and how nothing is ever truly lost if we are brave enough to return to where we began. _ 'A wonderful and transformative memoir about the impact of loss and the power of love; and one that illustrates how it is never too late to tackle suppressed grief' Julia Samuel, author of the Sunday Times bestseller This Too Shall Pass: Stories of Change, Crisis and Hopeful Beginnings 'Brilliant and moving' The Times 'Hodge's beautiful memoir is both a devastating, grief-fuelled account of her sister's death and a redemptive tale of an emotional reckoning' i 'There are scenes that will reduce you to tears, but there's also humour, forgiveness and uplifting optimism. By the end of this dazzling debut you just want to give her a huge cheer for coming through' Evening Standard 'A beautifully-written life-story of trauma and healing' Marian Keyes I read this in one sitting, tears splashing onto its pages. A beautiful book about grief, losing a sibling, trauma, drugs, parenting & memory in the most exquisite way.
