During a Melbourne heatwave, Hannah’s family life begins to distort beyond her deepest fears. Feeling powerless and invisible, Hannah seeks refuge in the two anarchists of her life: her wild best friend, Chloe, and her eccentric grandmother, Essie, who look like they know how life really works. But Hannah’s loyalty to both is tested, first by her attraction to Chloe’s older brother, and then by Essie’s devastating secret that sheds new light on how the family has lost its way. Even if Hannah doesn’t know what to believe in, she’d better start believing in herself.
This is a dramatic and tense tale, with two captivating women at its heart. Gorgeously written, mixing history and hope, this is a story that will ask big questions and make you hunt for answers.
