They said it was an accident. Her mother knows they're lying. But the truth comes with a price…


Abi Knight is startled awake in the middle of the night to a ringing phone and devastating news – her teenage daughter, Olivia, has been in a terrible accident.

But then Abi sees the angry bruises around Olivia's wrists and learns that her sensible daughter is in fact three months pregnant . . .
