We Are All Constellations

Amy Beashel

A heartbreaking but hope-filled tale about the stories we tell ourselves to survive…

You are strong. You are brave. You are not alone.

Seventeen-year-old Iris is happy. She’s fearless, she’s strong. She is everything but a girl who lost her mum.

But Iris’s dad and step-mum have been keeping a secret. One big enough to unravel her. Only the magnetic Órla can provide an escape, until things get…complicated. As Iris questions who she is, it becomes clear she can’t run away from grief.

What happens when someone who has never faced up to the darkness lets it in?

‘I am in complete and utter love with everything Amy Beashel writes, but this one may just be my favourite.’

Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places

‘Powered by the pain of grief and the joy of love, We Are All Constellations is a deeply compelling coming of age story that deals honestly and unflinchingly with the agonies of discovering your past may not be all that you believed. Amy Beashel's exquisite prose is full of heart and her characters will stay with you long after the final page. I loved it.’

Louisa Reid, author of Gloves Off
