The creepiest debut thriller you will read this year!

One little girl.
Mirabelle's mother loves her. She's her 'little doll'. Mother dresses her, paints her face, and plaits her hair. But as Mirabelle grows, the dresses no longer fit quite as well, the face paint no longer looks quite so pretty. And Mother isn't happy.

Two little girls.
On Mirabelle's 13th birthday, Mother arrives home with a present - a new sister, 5-year-old Clarabelle, who Mother has rescued from the outside world.

But Mother only needs one.
As it dawns on Mirabelle that there is a new 'little doll' in her house, she also realizes that her life isn't what she thought it was. And that dolls often end up on the scrap heap...
