Kit Pearson’s endearing heroine from the award-winning The Whole Truth, Polly, is now thirteen and following in her sister’s footsteps to a boarding school in Victoria. The adjustment is difficult—all those rules!—and Polly often escapes into her dreams of becoming an artist. At least her family is intact again, and there are no more dark and difficult secrets to be kept hidden . . . that is, until her teenage sister, Maud, makes a dramatic confession. Will Polly be able to keep this new secret? Will it tear her family apart again?
