Forget books on paper. In Leora’s world, there’s only one place to tell a person’s story: their skin. Every action. Every deed. Every success and every failure – tattooed on your body forever. Let’s hope you have a good story to tell. But what about when you die? Well – that’s still not the end of the story. Your tattoos get removed and made into a Skin Book: a record of your good life. So when Leora’s father dies, she wants to honour him like this. Except that something is very wrong. His ink has been edited; his book isn’t complete. Who has done this – and why? Did she ever really know him at all?
