When Selasi and Akorfa were young girls they were more than just cousins: they were an inseparable duo, prepared to do anything to protect one another. There was no such thing as a ‘secret’ between the two girls, who lived their entire childhoods side by side.
Then Selasi begins to change. She becomes withdrawn and hostile, losing interest even in the schoolwork that used to be so important to her. Selasi constructs a wall around herself designed to keep everyone out – even Akorfa.
It will be years before Akorfa learns what happened. But is there still time to save their friendship? When a terrible crisis brings them back together as young women, they must confront the secrets that Selasi has worked so hard to bury, and challenge those who would prefer her to remain silent.
