"I keep a diary," Treasure said.
"I keep a diary, too," said India, and then she blushed.
Treasure and India are two girls with very different backgrounds. As an unlikely but deep friendship develops between them, they keep diaries, inspired by their heroine, Anne Frank. Soon the pages are filled with the details of their most serious secret ever.
A superbly moving novel for older readers from the prize-winning author of The Illustrated Mum and The Story of Tracy Beaker.
