Synopsis

Fifteen-year old Anais Hendricks is smart, funny and fierce, but she is also a child who has been let down, or worse, by just about every adult she has ever met. Sitting in the back of a police car, she finds herself headed for the Panopticon, a home for chronic young offenders where the social workers are as suspicious as its residents. But Anais can't remember the events that have led her there, or why she has blood on her school uniform...

Customer Reviews

Moving and heartfelt, this book will open your eyes to a system that fails so many of the children that it seeks to protect. Anais Hendricks is brilliantly written, the perfect protagonist for this journey through a world in which childhood ends far too soon. Jenni Fagan is a wonderful writer, perceptive and unflinching. An amazing début novel, highly recommended.
