The Truants [9781526600110]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

People disappear when they most want to be seen.

Jess Walker, middle child of a middle class family, has perfected the art of vanishing in plain sight.

But when she arrives at a concrete university campus under flat, grey, East Anglian skies, her world flares with colour.

Drawn into a tightly-knit group of rule breakers - headed up by their maverick teacher, Lorna Clay - Jess begins to experiment with a new version of herself.

But the dynamic between the friends begins to darken as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy.

Jess is thrown up against the question she fears most: what is the true cost of an extraordinary life?

'One of the best books I have read in... forever. I fell in love with these characters and am still mourning that I don't get to live in their world anymore. Kate's writing is like a wickedly brilliant Donna Tartt, Agatha Christie and Liane Moriarty all mixed into one ... Nothing but absolutely brilliant from beginning to end' SCARLETT CURTIS

'The Truants teases, seduces and thrills but ultimately it's about the best kind of love affair - allowing for the freedom to be yourself' MIRANDA HART


AUTHOR: Kate Weinberg was born and lives in London. She studied English at Oxford and creative writing in East Anglia. She has worked as a slush pile reader, a bookshop assistant, a journalist and a ghost writer. The Truants is her first novel.
