Captive cover

Captive: I open my eyes. The cell is flooded with sunlight; the window is a splice of pale blue. Dust particles dance in the sparkling light, pirouetting in a golden line from the window to the opposite wall of the cell, where they seem to converge into shapes. It is like looking into a kaleidoscope. Dad isn’t here. No one is, but me. Robyn Knollys-Green is an A-list celebrity, famous for being the daughter of one of the world’s most powerful men. But not even the paparazzi can find her now. Robyn soon realises that she is trapped in a complicated web of global corruption and deceit – and that the strange, melancholy boy who has been tasked with guarding her might not be an enemy after all.

In Your Light: Sixteen-year-old Lil’s heart was broken when her big sister, Mella, went missing. One especially dark and rainy afternoon, Lil finds a strange girl, ‘Seven’, collapsed on the road outside her house. Tiny, gentle, terrified Seven was born into the Sisterhood of the Light, a seemingly peaceful community that believes in the healing power of the sun. But now the Sisterhood is unwilling to let Seven go. As Lil and Seven’s stories unfold and intertwine, they begin to trust each other with dark secrets. But can Lil save Seven from her past? And does Seven hold the key to what happened to Mella?
