Tarryn Fisher is one of my favourite authors. I've loved the three other books of hers I've read and this one is no exception. It's about a young girl trying to navigate life despite her emotionally absent mother and the town in which she lives, which all but consumes its inhabitants, pun intended. You'll have to read it to find out what I mean. Her books drip with atmosphere and her writing evokes every emotion possible. I Iove her.
