The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight Or, The DoubleBook - 2010
Two boys. One identity. He can change his life if he says yes...
An explosive new mystery from the award-winning author Jenny Valentine, The Double Life of Cassiel Roadnight is the story of a boy who assumes the identity of a missing teenager and in-so-doing unearths a series of shattering family secrets - and the truth about who he really is.
With all the classic hallmarks of a Jenny novel - a fantastically strong, sensitive and memorable first person narration; themes of loss and betrayal, family secrets and personal identity; truly quality writing that is 'literary' but never inaccessbile or pretentious, this is the thrilling new novel from the author of Finding Violet Park.

"Imagine getting something so precious, something you've wanted all your life, and then being so afraid of it, you can never enjoy it because you can't stop worrying it's going to break. That's how it was. I didn't know how to have this thing, this family. I didn't know how to have it and not destroy it."
