Do you know when to keep your mouth shut? Would you share a juicy rumour so long as no one names names? What if your friend was in serious trouble, but she asked you not to tell anyone? From keeping secrets to staying safe on the internet, this book looks at issues relating to privacy and how kids can cope with the conflicts that arise when trust is broken.
