On a frozen Cornish moor, a fourteen-year-old girl lives in a trailer with her dad and little brother. Ennor's mother left years ago, when things started to go wrong - and gradually their world has fallen apart. Now her father's gravely ill, school has closed, and Ennor knows they're going to take her brother away if things don't pick up soon. Days before Christmas, when the wind is cold and her dad's health takes a turn for the worse, Ennor packs a blanket, a map, a saucepan and a gun into her rucksack, and sets off to find her mum and bring her home. Ennor thinks she knows where she's going. But this journey will change her life for ever - it becomes a battle for survival, a heartbreaking story of love and friendship, and a fable about not finding what you were looking for, but finding something more important instead . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS
A heart-rending quest story about children in a bitterly cold, climate-changed Cornwall, searching for the everyday comforts and love of the world so recently lost. -- Susan Elkin * The Independent *
A tough, heart-breaking story of loss, fear and friendship * We love This Book *
A poetic, chilling and moving debut * Lovereading.co.uk *
Small but perfectly formed, Winter Damage is the sort of book that begs to be read out loud, even if there's no-one else near to hear it. It's a stone-cold stunner with an uncommonly humble heart, and I urge you to take in into yours, too -- Niall Alexander * Tor.com *
A beautiful book. It's mysterious and lyrical, sad but hopeful, and truly unforgettable * The Bookbag.co.uk Top Teen Reads 2013 *
Introducing a resourceful teenage heroine in bitter circumstances . . . This gripping quest tale is set in Cornwall in a near future suffering the effects of climate change and social collapse. Ennor sets out across the frozen moors to bring her mother home for Christmas, learning survival skills and the meaning of friendship from a gypsy girl and eventually joined by her younger brother and a childhood friend -- Geraldine Brennan * The Observer *
