Product description

Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2014

Does bad blood always win out? Edward spent three years locked up by his mother’s abusive partner, Harris. From the ages of four to seven, all he knew was fear. Years of foster care and therapy haven’t fully healed the scars. Then one fateful day, the teenage Edward glimpses himself in a photo. What he sees shocks him to the core: a vision of Harris. Was the monster who brutalised him really his father all along? Could there be a monster inside Edward too, waiting to break out?

  • By former Children’s Laureate and Carnegie Medal winner Anne Fine
  • A dark, disturbing tale of family ties and the aftermath of abuse
  • Anne Fine’s other books include The Tulip Touch and Madame Doubtfire
  • She has won the Whitbread and Guardian prizes and the Carnegie Medal twice

This book contains language and subject matter that may be considered objectionable. We believe this book covers themes important for teenagers to engage with but is not suitable for younger readers.
