Synopsis

Click here for our exclusive q&a and the author's account of how she came to write the book.

Books tell you what to believe. Books explain the world around you. What if a book had been written to explain a world constructed only for you? What if that world suddenly fell apart? Calamity Leek needs a new book, but she's going to have to write it herself.

This arresting debut novel is set in The Garden, where 14 'Sisters' are being held by a malevolent 'Aunty'. When one of the sisters starts to question what lies beyond the Wall of Safekeeping, the carefully constructed world they live in begins to fall apart. Its shocking premise, cast of weird and wonderful characters and striking narrative voice make this a compelling and original debut. - Frances
