Athena Liu is a literary darling and June Hayward is literally nobody.
When Athena dies in a freak accident, June steals her unpublished manuscript and publishes it as her own under the ambiguous name Juniper Song.
But as evidence threatens June’s stolen success, she will discover exactly how far she will go to keep what she thinks she deserves.
What happens next is entirely everyone else’s fault.

'A spiky, snarky, shady, smart, sinister take on white privilege' NIKKI MAY 'Incredibly, brilliantly entertaining... What a treat' CHARLOTTE PHILBY 'A funny, engrossing read about what people do when they reckon they can get away with it' ERIN KELLY 'A remarkable and incendiary novel' WIZ WHARTON 'A darkly satirical thriller about greed, truth, identity, and art' PENG SHEPHERD 'One of the most transfixing novels I've read in ages...
