Nollaig needs a place to hide. Da's been drinking more and more. It makes him mean. She could stick it out if it was just her. But in nine months' time, she'll have another life to consider - a life no one knows about yet. She wants to keep it that way. Besides, her best friend Stephen's the only one who'll even notice she's gone and he knows all about hiding the truth. He knows when to stop being 'different' because it makes the other boys uncomfortable. He knows when to say nothing at all. Stephen tracks Nollaig down to an old church not far from her home. It's a shelter - for now. But it soon becomes clear that they will have to choose what they want for the future: to stay in the shadows, or to live life in the open?
