But her world is turned upside down by three refugees, all hiding from life. Anthony is fourteen, already an outcast, bullied and shunned by his peers. Farid is an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, who has traveled across continents seeking peace. And Gordon Craig is a bitter, lonely old man. She knows all of them, but she doesn't know how dangerous they are. Being part of their lives could cost Imogen her own. Supercharged with tension and drama, this novel explores what happens when the fabric of normality is ripped apart, exposing the terrifying dark beneath.
