Saving Daisy by Phil Earle
Saving Daisy is the second critically novel by Phil Earle
***HEROIC, Phil Earle's hugely anticipated third novel is out on 24 April 2013***
Daisy's mum is gone. Her dad refuses to talk about it. As far as Daisy's concerned, it's all her fault. As her life starts to spiral out of control, panic leads to tragedy and Daisy's left alone.
But sometimes the kindness of a stranger can turn things around. A stranger who desperately wants to save Daisy - if she'll only let herself be saved . . .
A powerful and moving story linked to Phil Earle's critically acclaimed debut book, Being Billy.
