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

'Darling is beautifully written, lyrical and yet visceral, and manages to pull off that rare trick of two equally engaging voices so I never minded who I was with, and always wondered who to trust' Amanda Reynolds, author of Lying to You

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