End of Everything
When you're thirteen and your best friend goes missing, only one thing is certain: your life will never be the same again Lizzie and Evie are inseparable. They walk home from school together, sleep over at each other's houses, even flirt with boys together. And they tell each other everything. Or at least, that's what Lizzie thinks - until Evie goes missing, and Lizzie suddenly realises their friendship wasn't quite what she thought. A novel about two young girls discovering their sexuality; about fathers and daughters; about family and friendship; about jealousy, secrets and lies, The End of Everything is a powerful reminder that things aren't always what they seem.
A mesmerising emotional thriller for fans of The Virgin Suicides and The Lovely Bones
