An astonishing debut novel about a young girl’s coming of age in the haunting, enchanting world of an English commune Don’t go Outside. Don’t let the Bad in. These are the rules of Foxlowe, where the ragtag Family live under the watchful eye of their leader, Freya. For Green, the youngest, it’s not just home, but everything she knows. Outside, people live in little square houses, with unhappy families and tedious jobs. At Foxlowe, Green runs free among the wild moors and magical Standing Stones. Outside, people are corrupted by money. At Foxlowe, the Family share everything. Outside, the Bad is everywhere. At Foxlowe, the Family are safe, as long as they follow Freya’s rules and perform her rituals. But the arrival of Blue, Green’s baby sister, upsets this precarious order. Her interest in the Outside grows irrepressible, and before long she starts to talk about becoming a Leaver... Building inexorably to its terrifying climax, FOXLOWE tells a chilling, irresistible story of superstition and survival, betrayal and redemption, and a utopia gone badly wrong.
