During the summer of her GCSEs Kite's world falls apart.

Her best friend, Dawn, commits suicide after a long struggle with feeling under pressure to achieve.

Kite's dad takes her to the Lake District, to give her time and space to grieve.

In London Kite is a confident girl, at home in the noisy, bustling city, but in the countryside she feels vulnerable and disorientated.

Kite senses Dawn's spirit around her and is consumed by powerful, confusing emotions - anger, guilt, sadness and frustration, all of which are locked inside.

It's not until she meets local boy, Garth, that Kite begins to open up - talking to a stranger is easier somehow.

Kite deeply misses her friend and would do anything to speak to Dawn just once more, to understand why . . . Otherwise how can she ever say goodbye?A potent story about grief, friendship, acceptance and making your heart whole again.
