'An achingly human tale of love, mental illness and family secrets.' 

K J Taylor

Paddy had a troubled childhood. One night, he made a promise that could solve everything.

Now entering his final year of school, all he wants to do is get through it with something like a happy ending. But when he finds his dead dad’s old journal, a chain of events is set in motion that will challenge the core of his life and what he thinks he knows about the person closest to him.

In a year that most people his age are just trying to get their licence and manage the pressure of Year Twelve, Paddy will try to do the same … all while he falls in love, uncovers family secrets, faces his ultimate fear, and is forced to find a way forward without the crutch of a promise he once made.
