Summary

A girl must leave the forest home she has known all her life and venture into the wider world to save her matriarchal community from a deadly plague afflicting them.

Arty has lived in a hidden matriarchy in the hills of India all her life. But now a deadly plague is threatening her tiny commune, and she must leave her home and go into the modern world for help, before it's too late.

...you must find Matthew. He's your uncle. Look for him, or look for Tania. Find the keys and take them...Be careful of the rest of my family. Don't go into the basement.

With only three keys around her neck and two names on her lips, Arty must navigate the world outside the woods to uncover a lifetime of secrets.

NOTE: Contains swearing, discussion of attempted rape and heroin addiction. The community grows marijuana in order to obtain the currency necessary to buy things from the outside world.

Book of the week

An utterly compelling, thoughtful & unusual adventure thriller packed with rich characters & vivid descriptions of India. Some unexpected twists & turns yet the reader's credulity never feels stretched. Very good indeed.
