Product description

From the multi-award-winning author of Orangeboy, comes a YA road-trip mystery.

I pick up the envelope . . . As I rip down the sides, there’s loads of paper bursting out; stuck on flowers, dandelions, roses . . .

Spey recently received two surprises. The first: his ex-prisoner dad turning up unannounced, and the second: a mysterious package containing torn-up paper flowers.

Spey instantly recognises it as a collage he made with his old friend Dee, and decides she must be in danger, but there are no clues to her whereabouts.

There’s only one person he knows who can help to track her down . . . On a road trip like no other, will Spey and his dad find Dee, before it’s too late?

Our October 2021 Teen Book of the Month

Finally for my Teen October Book of the Month I have chosen Splinters of Sunshine. Spey awakes on Christmas morning to the ex-prisoner father he’s never met asleep on his sofa. Then he receives a mysterious package from his old friend Dee; who bounced between schools until she ended up in care and the world of gangs. They haven’t spoken for years, but Spey knows this means she must be in danger. There’s only one person who might be able to help… Can Spey and his dad find Dee and confront a criminal gang together, or will they be too late?

Patrice Lawrence is the author of Waterstones Book of the Year Orangeboy, and more recently multi-award-winning Eight Pieces of Silva. In my opinion, she is one of the best writers in modern YA fiction. With October being Black History Month, now more than ever is the time to celebrate black authors and their amazing writing. This thrilling road-trip mystery is perfect for fans of John Green, Alice Oseman and Emily Barr.
