A Great Big Shining Star, Paperback


Sixteen-year-old Grace has dreams, and she knows how to make them come true: a little silicone and surgery here and there -nose, breasts, lips, hair, teeth, nails.

Then with the right clothes and a new tan she'll be ready: ready to be seen, consumed and adored by millions.

Grace will become a celebrity. Someone, though, remembers her as an ordinary, pretty schoolgirl living in a rural paradise: a place of simple, natural beauty.

When he sees how utterly Grace has changed, he realises how far the world has fallen since those days.

The collision of their two lives, their two very different trajectories, can only end in catastrophe.
