Here at BRSBKBLOG we are very lucky to have a brilliant book giveaway for new YA thriller - The Sham by Ellen Allen
Ellen has loved reading ever since she was tiny and discovered Enid Blyton in a corner of her classroom - The Magic Faraway Tree, anyone? She later went on to develop a trilogy to rival Tolkien, based on The Hobbit (er, only it wasn't quite as good!).
As a grown up, her dream is to see her book in a book shop or to read a good review that some kind soul has left online for others to read. She lives in the south of France with her small daughter and would, one day, like to be able to master the French subjunctive.
Author of new YA novel The Sham, a keen outdoor swimmer (whatever the weather), an avid reader and she also likes to collect quotes, articles, tips etc. on how to write, submit & publish really good fiction.

Eighteen-year-old Emily Heath would love to leave her dead-end town, known locally as “The Sham”, with her boyfriend, Jack, but he’s very, very sick; his body is failing and his brain is shutting down. He’s also in hiding, under suspicion of murder. Six months’ ago, strange signs were painted across town in a dialect no one has spoken for decades and one of Emily’s classmates washed up in the local floods.
Emily has never trusted her instincts and now they’re pulling her towards Jack, who the police think is a sham himself, someone else entirely. As the town wakes to discover new signs plastered across its walls, Emily must decide who and what she trusts, and fast: local vigilantes are hunting Jack; the floods, the police, and her parents are blocking her path; and the town doesn’t need another dead body.
**This book is unsuitable for younger readers; it contains discussions about murder scenes, conversations about sex and profanity.
