Description

‘Daisy Johnson is the demon offspring of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King’ Observer

‘A gothic masterpiece. You can’t stop reading’ iNEWS

Something unspeakable has happened to sisters July and September.

Desperate for a fresh start, their mother Sheela moves them across the country to an old family house that has a troubled life of its own. Noises come from behind the walls. Lights flicker of their own accord. Sleep feels impossible, dreams are endless.

In their new, unsettling surroundings, July finds that the fierce bond she’s always had with September – forged with a blood promise when they were children – is beginning to change in ways she cannot understand.

Taut, transfixing and profoundly moving, Sisters explodes with the fury and joy of adolescence. It is a story of sibling love and sibling envy that fans of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King will devour.

‘Daisy Johnson is one of the best writers in this country … an astonishing stylist. Sisters is a thumping good book, haunting, visceral and potent.’ Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers

Publisher Review

A short, sharp explosion of a gothic thriller whose tension ratchets up and up to an ending of extraordinary lyricism and virtuosity. * Observer *Fiction to Look Out for in 2020* *
