  • The electrifying new novel from the Man Booker-shortlisted author of Everything Under

    After a serious case of school bullying becomes too much to bear, sisters July and September move across the country with their mother to a long-abandoned family home.

    In their new and unsettling surroundings, July finds that the deep bond she has always had with September – a closeness that not even their mother is allowed to penetrate – is starting to change in ways she cannot entirely understand.

    Inside the house the tension among the three women builds, while outside the sisters meet a boy who tests the limits of their shared experiences.

    With its roots in psychological horror, Sisters is a taut, powerful and deeply moving account of sibling love that cements Daisy Johnson's place as one of the most inventive and exciting young writers at work today.
