Description

Aster. Violet. Tansy. Mallow. Clementine.

Sold as children. Branded by cursed markings. Trapped in a life they never would have chosen.

When Aster's sister Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge - in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by the land's most vicious and powerful forces - both living and dead - their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.

It's going to take more than luck for them all to survive.

Content warnings: sexual assault, addiction, violence, references to rape and suicide.

Review quote

I loved these girls so much that it was sad to put the book down. I look forward to seeing what Charlotte Nicole Davis comes out with next. * The Whispering of the Pages * 'The group's adventures are compelling and as the story progresses, you'll fall in love with these lost girls who just want to lead normal lives.' -- Jayne Nelson * SFX Magazine * ' I was delighted to discover just how strong the messages in this book were. Davis doesn't pull any punches with it, she doesn't hold back one jot, and that's really something I never knew I was craving in a YA book until now. ' * coffeestarsbooks * The writing was really good, easy to read but also mesmerising. This story is brutal and unique, I could barely put it down. * Midnight Book Girl *

About Charlotte Davis

Charlotte Davis is a recent graduate of The New School's Writing for Children MFA program and is currently working as an editorial assistant at Bloomsbury USA Children's Books. She grew up in Kansas City, which was once the Wild West but today is mostly just fro-yo shops. She now lives in a little apartment in Brooklyn.

Charlotte says: 'I didn't want to tell a story about racism, necessarily - there's plenty of that on the news - but a story about a black girl and her sister finding freedom? Young women of all types getting into good trouble? Underdogs coming together to stand up against the rich and powerful? That sounded like exactly what the doctor ordered.'
