What’s the story?
The book is about a boy named Raven whose mother died a few years before and his father left him on his own. He gets new foster parents named Dan and Jackie and a foster sister named Ella. He starts a new school where two boys bully him, but then he makes a friend called Lotte. She tries to help him solve the mystery of his mother’s death. But when he finds his mum’s ex boyfriend, he ends up discovering another mystery completely.

Themes and Issues
Loss and Friendship. Family relationships, love and grief

Is it for me?
I thought this book was well written and had a good plot. It showed exactly how the characters were feeling. Even though it didn’t turn out as I expected, it was still a good book and I would recommend it to teenagers.
