A stunning, sad and darkly funny story about intense female friendship, from award-winning author, C. J. Flood.

It all started with a poo in a flowerbed.

Rosie and Titania are as close as sisters – closer, in fact. While Rosie is shy, red-faced and passive, Ti is big, tough and daring. They shouldn’t be friends, but they are.
Creeping out at night, the girls love to secretly wander through their coastal town, exploring empty streets and sharing their frustrations about school and their different, but equally difficult, families. But when Rosie betrays Ti, the two girls run in different directions – making decisions that could do irreparable damage to both of their lives. As Rosie confronts harsh truths, she must find a way back to Ti, and to herself.

Whenever I heard the word kindred, I thought of me and Ti.

‘Flood has a talent for contemporary detail, voice and atmosphere’ The Sunday Times
‘Brilliantly evocative…sharp and funny’ The Scotsman
