The powerful new novel from the "Sunday Times" bestselling author of Missing.
Nikki Grant has her whole life ahead of her when she discovers she's pregnant. But she welcomes the news with joy -- the baby will be a wonderful addition to the happy household she shares with the love of her life, Spencer James, and three close friends. Nikki's parents, however, are deeply disapproving of Spencer and the friends Nikki has chosen. A rift opens up between them that breaks their hearts, but they are all too proud to back down.
Baby Zac arrives, and Spence's career is starting to take off when suddenly events start to rush them down a very different road; nothing could have prepared them for the frightening and alien place in which they find themselves -- with Zac at the centre of it, and Nikki desperately trying to hold onto her baby, her life, her dreams.
