_____________________________________________________________

Augusta Hope has never felt like she fits in.

At six, she's memorising the dictionary. At seven, she's correcting her teachers. At eight, she spins the globe and picks her favourite country on the sound of its name: Burundi.

And now that she's an adult, Augusta has no interest in the goings-on of the small town where she lives with her parents and her beloved twin sister, Julia.

When an unspeakable tragedy upends everything in Augusta's life, she's propelled headfirst into the unknown. She's determined to find where she belongs - but what if her true home, and heart, are half a world away?

'A beautiful tale of family, of loss, of the awkward relationships we build with those we love the most...a must read!' Amelia D

'A powerful novel about fitting in, loss, & the people you really have connections with' Siobhan D
