Description

An instant New York Times bestseller—from the award-winning author of the Graceling Realm series—an ambitious and extraordinary novel about grief, adventure, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices.

Jane has lived a mostly ordinary life, raised by her recently deceased aunt Magnolia, whom she counted on to turn life into an adventure. Without Aunt Magnolia, Jane is directionless. Then an old acquaintanc,the glamorous and capricious Kiran Thrash, blows back into Jane's life and invites her to a gala at the Thrashes' extravagant island mansion called Tu Reviens. Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go."

What Jane doesn't know is that at Tu Reviens her story will change; the house will offer her choices that could ultimately determine the course of her newly untethered life. But every choice comes with a price. She might fall in love, she might lose her life, she might come face-to-face with herself. 

“A genre-obliterating book—it all but rewires your brain as you read it…She’s a vivid, inclusive writer, and everything serves an empowering subtext: Don’t let anyone tell you who you’re supposed to be, and don’t let anyone tell you what a novel is supposed to be either.” —The New York Times Book Review
