Lisa Heathfield has been one of my auto-buy authors since i picked up Flight of a Starling a couple of years ago. Her writing is absolutely stunning and always covers some more intense topics which i really appreciate. I couldn’t have been happier to see her return to YALC this year with her latest release, I Am Not A Number, and i definitely couldn’t wait to pick it up.
