The Year After You
Nina de Pass
Up in the Alps, Cara’s old life feels a million miles away. Nobody at Hope Hall knows her past. With secrets to keep, can Cara allow herself this chance to live again?
New Year’s Eve, San Francisco. The most promising party of the year ends in tragedy. Georgina is gone and nothing will bring her back.
Nine months later, Cara’s mother decides a Swiss boarding school will be the fresh start Cara needs. Up in the Alps, Cara’s old life feels a million miles away. Nobody at Hope Hall knows her past – and she intends to keep it that way.
Yet, as much as she keeps her distance, her new friends break down the walls she has so carefully built up – especially the offbeat, straight-talking Hector, who understands how she feels better than anyone. But the closer Cara grows to Hector, the more her old life slips away.
Embracing life at Hope Hall means letting go of the past. With Georgina gone, how can Cara allow herself this second chance?
