What should you do with a dangerous truth?

Zara keeps secrets. It's the only way she can stay safe, now that

the hard right Party is in power. Because under the government's

British Born policy, Zara is an illegal, at risk of immediate

arrest and deportation.

She can't tell anyone who she is. And she can't tell anyone what

she knows: the truth about how her friend Sophie died.

Stay silent. Stay secret. Stay safe. They're such

simple rules.

Until she meetsAsh...
