Old Times by Molly Taylor
Twins Stefi and Zafer are about to turn 18. However, life is throwing up complications: Zafer is ill and Stefi is scared their past is about to catch up with them.
Five years ago, Stefi, Zafer and their friends were involved in the murder of a policeman. Only one of them was accused and convicted: well-known trouble-maker and ‘bad kid’ Tom Joy.
When Stefi finds out Tom Joy has been released from prison, she fears he will be out for revenge and decides it’s time to get the gang back together. Stefi has a plan to protect them all, but will they ever be able to move on?
