Publisher's Summary

Andrea Beaty's first novel has been called "compelling fiction that will be a hit with young readers" ( Horn Book magazine).

Since her brother died, Lily has pretended to be brain damaged, and no one knows her secret. That is, until a troubled girl named Tinny refuses to leave her alone. But Tinny's meddling soon gets Lily into a jam that threatens their safety.
