Meet Sarah Crossan

Meet Sarah Crossan

Join us in store to meet Sarah Crossan, the Carnegie Award Winning author of One, as she discusses her new verse novel We Come Apart, written with Brian Conaghan.

Jess would never have looked twice at Nicu if her friends hadn’t left her in the lurch. He’s so not her type. Appearances matter to Jess. She’s got a lot to hide.

Nicu thinks Jess is beautiful. His dad brought Nicu and his mum here for a better life, but now all they talk about is going back home to find Nicu a wife. The last thing Nicu wants is to get married. But his dad’s fists are the most powerful force in Nicu’s life, and in the end, he’ll have to do what his dad wants.

As Nicu and Jess get closer, their secrets come to the surface like bruises. The only safe place they have is with each other. But they can’t be together forever and stay safe – can they?

A high-impact, high emotion, contemporary story of star-cross’d lovers.

6.00pm arrivals for a 6.30pm start.
