An original and captivating book for young adults by the Laura Jarrett, critically acclaimed author of Skin Deep. I picked up the book and thumbed through the pages. Names in alphabetical order, names with meanings, names I knew, names I'd never heard of. How to pick? Nothing that would stand out, nothing that would link me to the past - those were the instructions. The past. As if everything that had gone before this moment was buried already. Holly is fifteen years old, but she's only been "Holly" for a matter of months. Because of something that happened, she and her family have had to enter witness protection and have all assumed new identities. All, that is, except her sister Katie, who is autistic. Starting at a new school mid-term is hard enough at the best of times, and Holly has no clue who she is any more. Lonely and angry, she reaches out to friends - new and old. But one wrong move will put all their lives in danger. Laura Jarrett is one of the finest authors writing books for young adults in Britain today. Praise for By Any Other Name 'Intensely romantic, really thrilling ...Of the 60 or so books I've read so far this year, this is one of the very, very best.'
