It’s 1994. When fourteen-year-old Sam Green moves from the seaside to a suburb with her dad, she becomes obsessed with a mysterious house in the local park.
But why doesn’t her dad want her to visit the park? And why does the friendly assistant in the local library seem so familiar?
With the help of Jimi, the intriguing boy who lives upstairs, Sam learns more about the history of the park, until everything she knows starts to feel as if it’s being turned inside-out…
“An evocative story about family ghosts and secrets, and the truths we keep locked inside ourselves. Fantastic imagery and utterly believable characters combine into a page turning debut.”
“A poignant coming-of-age novel, moving and beautifully told.”
“This is a novel that is something different, beginning with two young people’s shared fascination with an ‘inside-out house’ art work. This read will appeal to deep-thinking teenagers who don’t want to be stereotyped and put into boxes.”
