Fifteen-year-old Zoe has a secret - a dark and terrible secret that she can't confess to anyone she knows. But then one day she hears of a criminal, Stuart Barnes, locked up on death row in Texas. Like Zoe, Stuart is no stranger to secrets. Or lies. Or murder.
Full of heartache yet humour, Zoe tells her story in the only way she can - in a letter to the man in prison in America. Armed with a pen and sitting on her bedroom carpet, Zoe takes a deep breath, eats a jam sandwich, and begins her tale of love and betrayal on the back of a Geography worksheet.
