THE SECRETS WE KEEP

by Weetman, Nova

A beautifully written and insightful new novel sensitively uncovering the effects of trauma on the mind of an eleven-year-old girl.

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a house burn, but it’s not like anything else …

Clem Timmins has lost it all – her house, possessions and clothes and her mum. Now living in a tiny flat with her dad, she has to go to a new school far from what she knows.

On her first day, Clem meets Ellie. To fit in, Clem tells Ellie that her mum died in a house fire and immediately regrets it when Ellie confides that her own mother is dying of cancer.

When Clem receives a letter she doesn't want to read, it becomes clear she can't run from her secrets forever, especially when the truth appears right in front of her face.

Nova Weetman’s prose has appeared in various literary magazines including Kill Your Darlings, Island, Tirra Lirra, Wet Ink, Mslexia, Overland, Island and Cardigan Press. She has written for the children’s television series Pixel Pinkie and Buzz Bumble and wrote the short films, Ripples and Mr Wasinski’s Song for which she received an AWGIE nomination for best short screenplay, and the Best Short Film Award from the Melbourne International Film Festival. She has also won the HarperCollins Fellowship and the FAW Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript. Nova lives with her partner, a playwright, and their two children, in a falling down house.

Clem burrows her way into your heart with her tattered leggings, holey Converse and terrible tangle of secrets. Mysterious and heartfelt, The Secrets We Keep burns inside long after you have finished reading.
