Christian and Layla

Claire Merchant

Fourteen-year-old Christian Turner starts his new life in the small town of Almanbury. Unhappy with his father's decision to move there from South Coast, Christian's spirits reach a new low. Just when he feels like his life is going up in smoke, he meets Layla Thomas, a bubbly schoolmate, who turns out to be the love of his life. They sweep each other off their feet. It's the type of love that we all want to find; one that will scare us a little.
From that day, they are Christian and Layla, Layla and Christian. Inseparable, together forever... until, after years of a perfect relationship, Layla disappears from Christian's life without a goodbye. Devastated, Christian refuses to accept that she left and struggles to move on, wanting to understand why, and hoping she will come home.
Beautiful, romantic, funny and sad, this is a story of two people who are destined to be together. But will they?
