If you want a unique book with family and friendship then The Deepest Secret by Carla Buckley is for you! I came across this book at the library and I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. Eve Lattimore is a mother of two children, Tyler and Melissa. Her husband works long hours in another state and Eve must care for them on her own. When Tyler was two years old he was diagnosed with a rare condition called XP. Every day when the sun rises, Eve makes sure that Tyler stays in his room with sunscreen on and the door closed. Eve’s job is to protect him after all, most people with XP don’t live past twenty. Now Tyler is fourteen years old and Eve tries to spend as much time with him as possible, maybe he could live until a cure is found. But, tonight Eve’s life is going to change from one simple act, that could put her in great danger. Carla Buckley’s writing style also made this book unique and that much better. Rating- 5/5 stars.

"Wishing for a normal life after being diagnosed with a rare medical condition that makes him lethally sensitive to light, 13-year-old Tyler roams the nighttime streets to observe the neighbourhood family lives he covets only to become a key witness in the disappearance of a young girl."
