'Impossible to put down - this is a writer to watch.' C.J. Skuse
Here's the thing about being Inside. Ain't no one believes that they are.
Ele has never been Outside, but she knows it exists - she just has to prove it.
Her whole world is Inside. Trapped with her books and the Others and Him.
She has never seen a tree or felt the rain but that's about to change. Ele's getting out. For good.
In the spirit of Emma Donoghue's Room, Outside is a poignant story of strength, friendship and unconditional love, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

"...this is no fantasy book but a clever exploration of how we tell ourselves certain narratives in order to make sense of our world. It's a book about speaking your truth without shame, coming to terms with your past and giving a voice to those who have been silenced or mistreated." * Viva Magazine *
