Description

From the author of the bestselling THE GIRL OF INK & STARS
comes a moving, enthralling and heartbreaking tale of finding your
way home - shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the Blue Peter
Book Award.

'The Island at the End of Everything
is such a fiercely kind and generous book, and so finely-wrought
and so full of light ... brilliant.' KATHERINE RUNDELL

'...
a beautiful, haunting tale of leprosy, lepidoptery
and loyalty.' FRANCES HARDINGE

Amihan lives
on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants - including her
mother - have leprosy. Ami loves her home - with its blue seas and
lush forests, Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival
of malicious government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever:
islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Banished
across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds a strange
and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home
before it's too late?
