Summary

A teenage girl who has grown up in a cult finds her world view start to change with the arrival of some new members from the outside.

Fifteen-year-old Pearl has lived her whole life protected within the small community at Seed, where they worship Nature and idolise their leader, Papa S. When some outsiders arrive, everything changes.

Pearl experiences feelings that she never knew existed and begins to realise that there is darkness at the heart of Seed. A darkness from which she must escape, before it's too late.

NOTE : Although no sexual abuse is directly referred to or discussed, it will be clear to most readers that it does occur and the physical violence is explicit. There are several disturbing scenes, including one where the heroine is put inside a gradually shrinking room and played the sound of screaming. Definitely one for older readers.
