The Truth and Lies of Ella Black
This second novel from Emily Barr is a race-against-time thriller and a true coming-of-age story. It explores the highs and lows of first love, all set under a blazing Rio sun.
Ella Black seems to live the life most other seventeen-year-olds would kill for . . .
Until one day, telling her nothing, her parents whisk her off to Rio de Janeiro. Determined to find out why, Ella takes her chance and searches through their things.
And realises her life has been a lie.
Unable to comprehend the truth, Ella runs away, to the one place they'll never think to look - the favelas.
But there she learns a terrible secret - the truth about the deepest darkest side of herself . . .
