The double life of Cassiel Roadnight - Jenny Valentine

Chap is 14 and living on the streets - existing day to day. An encounter at hostel for the homeless leads him into to a family who think he is their missing son and brother. What would you do ? Live the lie or try to discover the truth? Why does he look so much like the missing Cassiel Roadnight? Why does his newly found brother seem so sinister? What exactly is the truth behind Cassiel's disappearance?

Interspersed with flashbacks of Chap's life growing up alone with Grandad, the novel is a sensitive approach to the issues of family and identity, dealing with loss and isolation.

If you enjoyed Finding Violet Park, I'm sure you will enjoy this.
