A young girl hoping to start a new life free of an incident which happened to her finds her past still catches up with her.
When Anna Clark arrives in a small fishing village in the middle of the school year her social media profiles are mysteriously empty. It's as if until recently she didn't even exist.
But while Anna hopes a new home means a fresh start, she's about to find out you can't outrun the past forever. As time starts to run out on her secrets, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the tale of Maggie, a local woman accused of witchcraft centuries earlier, whose story has terrifying parallels to Anna's own.
NOTE: Contains strong language, rape and reference to abortion. Anna is subject to online bullying where naked images of herself that she shared with a former boyfriend are made public by him and her face is digitally transposed into pornographic films to make it look as though she is a participant. The language that is used towards her in relation to this material is extremely crude and graphic.
NOTE: Laura Bates is the founder of The Everyday Sexism Project.
NOTE: UKLA Book Awards Longlist 2020
The intertwining of present day & historical storylines is an effective way for Bates to explore topical themes of misogyny & power. A moving, challenging & totally gripping read for young feminists and beyond, it's a must - tho be aware of content.
