Description of this Book

It starts like any other day for Jess - get up, draw on eyeliner, cover up tattoos and head to school. But soon it's clear this is no ordinary day, because Jess's best friend Eden isn't at school...she's gone missing. Jess knows she has to do everything in her power to try to find Eden before the unthinkable happens. So she starts to retrace their steps, looking back over the summer she and Eden have just spent together. She starts to notice new things. She starts to question everything she thought Eden's summer had been about...A tense and thrilling journey through friendship, loss, betrayal and self discovery.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'A powerful exploration of the extraordinary power of friendship, both truthful and intense. It's that rare and wonderful thing: a thriller of the heart, written from the heart, that hits home straight to the heart' Melvin Burgess, Carnegie Medal winning author of Junk. 'Dazzling. Utterly gripping. Writing so fresh every chapter leaves you gasping for air and SO tautly plotted it hurts. If you're going to read one book about the true nature of friendship let it be EDEN SUMMER.' Brian Conaghan, Carnegie Medal shortlisted author of When Mr Dog Bites
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
