Saving Daisy
by Phil Earle

Goodreads synopsis:
Losing love, fighting guilt, seeking hope.

Daisy’s mum is gone. Her dad refuses to talk about it and as far as Daisy’s concerned, it’s all her fault…

Saving Daisy is a powerful and moving story that follows the life of Daisy Houghton who first featured in Phil Earle’s critically acclaimed debut, Being Billy. As Daisy struggles with misplaced guilt over her mother’s death, she turns to extreme and violent measures and soon her life starts spiralling out of control. This leads to tragedy and suddenly Daisy finds herself left all alone. But sometimes the kindness of a stranger can turn things around. A stranger who desperately wants to save Daisy – if she’ll only let herself be saved.

This was an obvious book for me to pick this week. This is because tonight I'm going to an author event at Waterstones Piccadilly in London, to meet David Levithan and Phil Earle, and seeing as I have all of David Levithan's books now, one of Phil Earle's was an obvious choice from my wishlist. I already have Being Billy on my Kindle, and this is the other one of his that I'm really interested in. It's sort of a follow on to Being Billy, so I will be reading it after, but all the same, I can't wait. I read a sample of Being Billy before I bought it, and I knew instantly that it would be a really unique read, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in. I will probably own both of these by the end of today!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
