Synopsis

'A remarkably assured debut, deftly plotted and with vivid, compelling characters that leap off the page' JOJO MOYES



'The book you'll fall in love with' STYLIST



'Entirely gripping ... Weinberg is a major talent' ALAIN DE BOTTON



'One of the best books I have read in... forever' SCARLETT CURTIS



People disappear when they most want to be seen.



Jess Walker, middle child of a middle class family, has perfected the art of vanishing in plain sight. But when she arrives at a concrete university campus under flat, grey, East Anglian skies, her world flares with colour.



Drawn into a tightly-knit group of rule breakers - led by their maverick teacher, Lorna Clay - Jess begins to experiment with a new version of herself. But the dynamic between the friends begins to darken as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy. Soon Jess is thrown up against the question she fears most: what is the true cost of an extraordinary life?
