Libby has an idyllic life on an apple orchard and is close to her grandfather, a cider maker. When he dies in a freak accident, Libby is devastated. She finds it difficult to talk to her parents about her feelings as her mother seems cold and her father says little. Grieving, angry, and feeling distant from her parents who are struggling with their own relationship, she begins compulsively pulling her hair out. 

To get away from the unhappiness, Libby unwillingly goes to boarding school. There, she befriends Charlie, and goes to stay with her family, which is warm, friendly and fun. While there, Libby enjoys being part of all the outdoor adventures and gains new perspectives on herself and her parents. This young adult novel is a story of strong friendships and growing understanding that combine to overcome difficulties.

Product Review

"An exquisitely told first novel from this New Zealand author...McRae has a talent for getting inside the mind of a young girl - and her writing has all the bitter-sweetness of those cider apples."New Zealand Herald, Canvas magazine
"McRae has managed to create a real teenage character with hopes, dreams, desires and thoughts that steer her stumbling along the rocky, doubting, emotional, searching journey through a life fraught with crushed dreams and a need to belong in the minds of those in her own age group."Sam Tipene Te Wharangi - Rotorua Review
