A dystopian, post apocalyptic novel that sets revolt in a mythic future, full of underground warnings, old earth magic, witches stopped up in green glass bottles, a girl with wheels for legs and men who are trees that take human form just so they might be with her.
It’s a book that clearly originates in the protest movement and runs with radical change, a sense of people fighting to save or protect what matters to them, from their own dignity, safety and freedom as human beings to the land they love.
Lavishly illustrated by artist Rima Staines.
‘A slow tale of a wild girl in a savage and lost land. Haunting and weird’. Starburst
