Publisher Description

Finn's druggie Dad is on trial for manslaughter, and so Finn is sent away to an exclusive boarding school to remove him from the small-town gossip machine. At first he feels a bit like a fish out of water, but soon makes some good friends, and even scores with the much-lusted-after Mia, who plays in the symphonic band with him. However there is someone who knows Finn's secret ...Blackmail and lies ...will Finn ever face the truth? It's not until disaster befalls one of his friends at an illicit after-ball party that Finn learns what is most important in life.
