Tall Bones by Anna Bailey


When Emma leaves her friend Abi at a party in the woods, she believes that their lives are just beginning. Many things will happen that night, but Emma will never see her friend again. What happens next in Whistling Ridge is so much more than the story of a missing girl. It's a story of secrets and shame, regrets and rage, love and lies. For Abi's disappearance cracks open the façade of the small town, peeling away the layers of its secret past.

Even within Abi's own family there are questions to be asked - of Noah, the older brother whom Abi betrayed, of Jude, the shining younger sibling who hides his battle scars, of Dolly, her mother and Samuel, her father - both in thrall to the fiery preacher who holds the entire town in his grasp. Then there is Rat, the outsider, whose presence both unsettles and excites those around him. Anything could happen in Whistling Ridge, this tinder box of small-town rage.

All it will take is just one spark...the truth of what happened that night at the Tall Bones.
