Louise Rokeby is horrified when she is sent to a Christian girls’ boarding school after being suspended from her local day school. But she quickly makes friends with fellow new girl Juliet, the daughter of celebrities, and finds that being at boarding school is more fun than she expected. However, her past has not been left behind as easily as she thought, and she must face it again before she can find real happiness at school. The first book in an unmissable new school series by Liz Filleul, the author of To All Appearance, Dead.

Liz Filleul was born in the English Midlands, educated on the Welsh coast, and spent several years working as a London-based journalist before setting off on a solo trip around the world. A holiday romance in Tasmania led to marriage and migration to Melbourne in 1995. Liz now lives with her husband and their young son on top of an Australian mountain, where she juggles motherhood with freelance editing and writing.

Liz's first published fiction appeared in the 1980s, when she sold a number of stories to the British teenage girls' magazine Patches. After that, fiction took a back seat while she concentrated first on her journalistic career and later on settling into her new life in Australia. She began writing seriously again in 2000, and won the Scarlet Stiletto Award for best short crime story by an Australian woman in 2004, after previously being short-listed twice.

In her spare time Liz collects girls' school stories and other children's books, reads crime fiction, enjoys bushwalking and travelling, and follows football, cricket and Australian Rules football. She also spends far too many hours in cyberspace, where she is known as lizarfau.
