Maggie Mitchell’s Pretty Is was undoubtedly one of our favourite books of 2015. It’s a dark, gripping and thoughtful debut about survival, girlhood, beauty, and whether or not you can ever escape the past.
One summer, nearly twenty years ago, two twelve year olds were abducted and kept captive in the forest.
There they formed a bond that could never be broken.
What really happened in the woods that summer?
