An irresistible new novel from Guardian-award-winning novelist, Jenny Valentine.
Number 33 Georgiana Street houses many people and yet seems home to none. To runaway Sam it is a place to disappear. To Bohemia, it's just another blip between crises, as her mum ricochets off the latest boyfriend. Old Isobel acts like she owns the place, even though it actually belongs to Steve in the basement, who is always looking to squeeze in yet another tenant. Life there is a kind of ordered chaos. Like ants, they scurry about their business, crossing paths, following their own tracks, no questions asked.
But it doesn't take much to upset the balance. Dig deep enough and you'll find that everyone has something to hide…
I only gave this four stars because even though I loved the story I felt it was let down by one very poor narrator, that of Bohemia. The voice of Sam was good though.
