(No reviews yet) Write a Review

WINNER of the 2017 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction

What if the power to hurt were in women's hands? Suddenly - tomorrow or the day after - teenage girls find that with a flick of their fingers, they can inflict agonising pain and even death. With this single twist, the four lives at the heart of Naomi Alderman's extraordinary, visceral novel are utterly transformed.

'Electrifying'  Margaret Atwood

'A big, page-turning, globe-trotting thriller'  Guardian
