THE CRASH is out today!
That’s right, Lisa Drakeford’s newest novel The Crash is out today! Told from five different perspectives, The Crash is a stunning YA novel perfect for fans of Kevin Brooks or Melvin Burgess. Authentic, relatable and bittersweet – a perfect piece of UKYA.
Best friends Sophie and Tye are watching TV when a car crashes through the living room wall. The driver and passenger are twins, Harry and Gemma. Next door neighbour, eleven-year-old Issy, witnesses the accident. In the aftermath, Tye is thrown into a coma, Gemma’s dark past begins to haunt the present, and Sophie starts to fall for Harry – but how can she, when he was the driver who nearly killed her best friend? And Issy, meanwhile, hides a terrible secret …
