A white teenage girl clashes with her new black stepmother in this debut reading group thriller

`Sure to be a reading group favourite' Metro

`A brilliant and surprising chameleon of a novel ... the twists and turns left me reeling' Eleanor Wasserberg, author of Foxlowe

`A page-turning thriller that grips the reader ... I read through the night to discover the dramatic denouement' Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat

`I devoured Darling in a couple of days; told by two unforgettable female narrators, it's urgent, original and genuinely unputdownable' Clare Fisher, author of All the Good Things

`Dark, provocative and a refreshing take on the psychological thriller genre. Darling and Lola are both brilliant creations' Emma Curtis, author of One Little Mistake

Lola doesn't particularly want a new stepmother. Especially not one who has come out of nowhere and only been with her dad for three months. And - she's not racist or anything - but since when did her dad fancy black women anyway?

Darling didn't particularly want a new stepdaughter. Especially not one as spiteful and spoilt as Lola. She does want Lola's dad though. And he wants her, so that's that: Darling and Lola will just have to get used to each other.

Unless Lola can find a way to get rid of Darling.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`Fast-paced ... similar in spirit to Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin' Sunday Times

`Stunning. I swung back and forth not knowing who to trust, and loved the two different voices which were so distinct. It had some brilliant twists and surprises, and I never knew where it was going. On top of that it was so beautifully written with such a distinctive style' Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request

`Sure to be a reading group favourite' Metro

`A darkly funny and modern take on literature's wicked stepmothers. Inspired by the racist abuse she was subjected to after the Brexit referendum, Rachel Edwards isn't pulling any punches' Independent

`A brilliant and surprising chameleon of a novel. I was so absorbed in the voices of Darling and Lola that the twists and turns of their story left me reeling' Eleanor Wasserberg, author of Foxlowe'

`A page-turning thriller that grips the reader with its twisty exploration of the complex relationship between step mother and step daughter. I read through the night to discover the dramatic denouement' Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat

`I devoured Darling in a couple of days; told by two unforgettable female narrators, it's urgent, original and genuinely unputdownable' Clare Fisher, author of All the Good Things

`Dark, provocative and a refreshing take on the psychological thriller genre. Darling and Lola are both brilliant creations' Emma Curtis, author of One Little Mistake

Firstly, thank you to @harperinsider who suggested I read this book......once again they were correct!
