White Lies, Black Dare

When I think of all the people I ever wanted to be, I’m pretty sure this isn’t one of them…

Asha Wright has it all – a barrister mum, a place at a private school, and big dreams of a life where she’s a real Somebody. But when her mum gets cancer, Asha’s fairytale fades and she finds herself back in Peckham, at a tough new school with new teachers, new kids, and Angel Jones, queen bee.

Angel is everything Asha wants to be – beautiful, brash and, above all, brave. But being one of the gang comes at a cost, and Asha is forced to play a dangerous game of Truth or Dare. Where will it end?


This fantastic story investigates the need to feel accepted and the lengths we go to fit in. (Booktrust)

‘An insightful, gripping, character-driven novel about peer pressure and the conflict between wanting to fit in and standing up for yourself … As the novel builds to a tense, emotional climax, you’ll be on the edge of your seat willing Asha to do the right thing.’ (Lovereadingforkids)
