Synopsis: ‘When is a secret not a secret? When your whole life is public.
Frankie is used to being a politician's daughter, but it's election time, so life is crazier than usual. Add a best friend who's being weirdly distant, a brother to worry about, and the fact that Frankie's just humiliated herself in front of a hot guy - who later turns up at band practice to interview her about her music.
Jake seems to like Frankie - really like her. But then everything crumbles. Photos appear of Frankie's mum having secret meetings with a younger man - and she refuses to tell the public why. With her family falling apart around her, Frankie is determined to find out the truth - even if it means losing Jake.’
As I started reading this story, I was feeling indifferent,to the characters and the plot, but it wasn’t long before I was hooked. I loved the characters and what was happening to them. This novel is an emotional rollercoaster ride.
Family and relationships are at the heart of this novel. Australian politics, the media and the paparazzi are smaller issues and just enhance the novel. This is a contemporary look at Australian family life. Well worth a read.
