The Truth About Riley by Sinéad Moriarty


When Riley’s dad dies suddenly, leaving behind a mountain of debt, the life she’s used to starts crumbling around her. Suddenly finding herself homeless, Riley tries to keep up appearances at school, hiding the truth from her lovely but clueless friend Sophie and spiteful, suspicious Vanessa. But as strangers step up to help her and her mum, Riley realises that sometimes it is those you least expect who will change your life for the better …

The Truth About Riley is the timely and thought-provoking new story for young readers from one of Ireland’s best-loved storytellers.


'Sensitive and gripping … kids will love this book and be rooting for Riley from the very first page' Marita Conlon-McKenna

‘A deeply moving book’ Claire Hennessy, Irish Times

‘Sinéad brings the same warmth, wit and level of understanding life when you’re in that in-between age to her second novel.’ Belfast Telegraph
