Lesley Pearse’s latest blockbuster Dead To Me is as evocative, heartfelt and moving as ever. The story of two completely different girls – one well-off and fortunate, the other who lives a life of squalor and forced to steal to survive – who meet and form a long-lasting friendship. Until one betrays the other … breaking her heart. An enormous read that’ll keep you engrossed for a week or so. Penguin Books.
