What can I say? Well, its hard to believe that this was a debut novel. It is a very sensitive story and beautifully written. I love how much the characters feel like a family. I was a blubbering mess throughout.  Houghton, makes you laugh and cry, and that is a real skill.

Alice and Alfie are strangers. But they sleep next to each other every night.

Alfie Mack has been in hospital for months recovering from an accident. A new face on the ward is about as exciting as life gets for him right now, so when someone moves into the bed next to him he’s eager to make friends. But it quickly becomes clear that seeing his neighbour’s face won’t happen anytime soon.

Alice Gunnersley has been badly burned and can’t even look at herself yet, let alone anyone else to see her. She keeps the curtain around her bed firmly closed, but it doesn’t stop Alfie trying to get to know her. And gradually, as he slowly brings Alice out of shell, might there be potential for more?

A big thanks to #EmilyHoughton and #pigeonhole for the Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book for my honest review.
