The Girl Who Cried Wolf Paperback
by Bella James
A growing up story with a difference, and a startling debut, The Girl Who Cried Wolf shows the tumultuous transition from teenager to young woman and is a story about believing in something, whether love, faith or simply yourself. Anna Winters is beautiful, reckless and entirely self-absorbed.
She spends more time thinking up reasons to call in sick to school than she does studying for her A levels.
She shies away from her family, from responsibility - from anything in fact that doesn't involve peach cider and endless parties with her friend Jules. Anna assumes that her headaches are an inconvenient symptom of her wild lifestyle, until a doctor tells her that she has cancer... As a terrifying black cloud descends upon her, Anna finds solace in Michael, another patient in the oncology ward.
Michael shows Anna a chink of light in the darkness and sees beauty behind her illness and loves her sassy wit.
He makes Anna forget she is ill. Michael recovers; but Anna's prospects worsen. And in emergency surgery, as she hovers between life and death, she is given a stark glimpse of why her life is so broken, and as she realises the simple fulfilment of being truly content, fears it may now be too late...
