'Stunning' Herald Sun

A tender, coming-of-age novel from Indie Book Award for Debut Fiction-winning author Suzanne Daniel.

The only things 11-year-old Allegra's grandmothers share are a deep love for her, their hatred for each other and the fence between their homes.

Allegra is forced to divide herself into parts to appease those who profess to love her - but at what cost?

WINNER OF THE INDIE BOOK AWARD FOR DEBUT FICTION 2020


'Stellar debut...a story of family, second-wave feminism, faith, friendship' Marie Claire

'Will fly off the shelves into bookclub living rooms, where it will be admired for its imagination and heart.' Canberra Times

'Allegra drew me into her life from the first page and I didn't want to leave. Funny, smart, tender and wise, this is a book to curl up with by the fire or basking on the beach. I loved it.' Liz Byrski

'The momentum of the novel swings along at pace. Daniel's gift for authentic characters and her understanding of the way in which the past is tattooed on the present make this a delightfully thought-provoking romp.' Weekend Australian
