THE WEIGHT OF SMALL THINGS

The weight of small things is my debut novel. It tells the story of nine-year-old Frankie Appleton, who returns home from a birthday party to find her mother dead. The police suspect suicide, but Frankie knows there's more to it. And she thinks she knows who did it. In a world of busy adults, she just has to find a way to prove it. The book is a delicately brutal exploration of what lies behind closed doors, and of the secrets and lies that form the fabric of every family.
