‘Girl A,’ she said. ‘The girl who escaped. If anyone was going to make it, it was going to be you.’
Lex Gracie doesn’t want to think about her family. She doesn’t want to think about growing up in her parents’ House of Horrors. And she doesn’t want to think about her identity as Girl A: the girl who escaped. When her mother dies in prison and leaves Lex and her siblings the family home, she can’t run from her past any longer. Together with her sister, Evie, Lex intends to turn the House of Horrors into a force for good. But first she must come to terms with her six siblings – and with the childhood they shared.
Beautifully written and incredibly powerful, Girl A is a story of redemption, of horror, and of love.
Five Star Review
Astonishing. I was enthralled by the prose and power of the narrative.
This is writing at its very best. But it is a devastating story of childhood abuse in the family home known as the House of Horrors. The book is about what happened to them and how they dealt with the future.
It packs and emotional punch but there also times of humour and love. I raced through this because I needed to find out how they survived and how it affected them.
It is to be made into a TV show soon and I have no doubt it will be a huge success.
