Read our exclusive interview with Grace McCleen here

"An extraordinary and peculiarly haunting novel". (Chris Cleave, author of "The Other Hand").

My name is Judith McPherson. I am ten years old. On Monday a miracle happened. Judith doesn't have much. The house she shares with her devoutly religious father is full of dusty relics, reminders of the mother Judith never knew. Bullied at school, she finds comfort in creating a miniature world in her bedroom - a world of wonder she calls The Land of Decoration. Perhaps, she thinks, if she makes it snow in The Land of Decoration there will be no school on Monday. Sure enough, when Judith opens her curtains the next day, the world beyond her window has turned white. And that's when her troubles begin.
