Debut teen novel from Whitbread prize-winning author Susan Fletcher. Inspired by the Victor Hugo literary classic, the bestselling musical and multi award-winning movie, Les Miserables.

 

Paris, 1832. A street-girl takes a bullet, clutching a love note to her heart. What is Eponine’s story?

 

As a young child Eponine never knew kindness, except once from her family’s kitchen slave, Cosette. When at sixteen the girls’ paths cross again and their circumstances are reversed, Eponine must decide what that friendship is worth, even though they’ve both fallen for the same boy. In the end, Eponine will sacrifice everything to keep true love alive.

‘ … a very touching story of love, heartbreak, friendship, forgiveness and family.’

AMELIA WHITE (AGE 14), LOVEREADING4KIDS

I’m dying. There’s no use hoping I’ll live or telling myself, Keep going, it’s only a small wound. There’s too much blood on the ground.
I’m going to die in this street. I can hardly breathe.
