"It was as if she was outside her own body. Floating in mid-air.
She could see the looks of shock and horror on their faces. The tears in their eyes.
She looked down - saw what they could see...
A jagged spray of deep red splattered across the front of her clothes."
The Promise, the title on this book is everything, is what Marnie and Georgie had promised to her mother, never tell the truth of what really happened that fateful night. It will haunt them, but what is really worth a life?
