Secrets. Lies. Guilt. A shocking crime. A dark confession. Did My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece sucker-punch your gut? Get ready for more punishment. What’s worse than doing something utterly evil? Doing it and getting away with it. Fifteen-year-old Zoe has a terrible secret that she can never confess. Until she hears of a killer locked up on Death Row in Texas. Like Zoe, Stuart is no stranger to secrets. Or lies. Or murder. So, armed with a pen and a jam sandwich, Zoe takes a deep breath and tells all… Full of heartache and dark humour, this tale of blood and betrayal is told in Zoe’s letters to a stranger.
