Britain, 1962

Nothing ever happens in World’s End Close. So when Stevie discovers a runaway girl, the first thing she does is fetch her best friend, Ray. Both are dying for a bit of adventure, and when the girl begs for help, they readily agree.

As the threat of war grows, Anna becomes more mysterious. And when Stevie unearths a dark family secret, she wonders if Anna has come to World’s End Close on purpose, with a special message just for her . . .
