9780147510723: The Impossible Knife of Memory

A searing look at the effects of post traumatic stress on soldiers and their families, seen through the eyes of teenage Hayley. Hayley is struggling - struggling to make sure her ex-army dad shows up to work, struggling to avoid her stepmother, struggling not to fall in love with Finn, who really seems to get her. Struggling to forget the past. But some memories run too deep, and soon the cracks start to show. Stunning, hard-hitting fiction from an award-winning writer.

This is a wonderful book, cleverly and sympathetically written...Highly recommended for upper secondary students, a must read --Reading Time
