Sisters: Signed Edition (Hardback)Daisy Johnson (author)
- 10+ in stock
A uniquely disturbing novel from the author of Everything Under, Sisters explores the dark side of sibling devotion, striking a fine balance between character study and psychological horror.
The electrifying new novel from the Booker-shortlisted author of Everything Under
After a serious case of school bullying becomes too much to bear, sisters July and September move across the country with their mother to a long-abandoned family home.
In their new and unsettling surroundings, July finds that the deep bond she has always had with September - a closeness that not even their mother is allowed to penetrate - is starting to change in ways she cannot entirely understand.
Inside the house the tension among the three women builds, while outside the sisters meet a boy who tests the limits of their shared experiences.
With its roots in psychological horror, Sisters is a taut, powerful and deeply moving account of sibling love that cements Daisy Johnson's place as one of the most inventive and exciting young writers at work today.

Sisters has a hot, dark energy that thrums beneath the language like blood. Daisy Johnson's portrayal of female relationships is sticky, close and true. It will seep into your skin and linger in your bones. * Jessica Andrews, author of Saltwater *
