I KNOW I’M A BAD PERSON. THAT THERE’S SOMETHING COILED AND ROTTEN IN ME.
17-year-old Lily is mama’s girl, mama’s doll.
Every evening she pours Mama a glass of perfectly spoilt orange juice. She arranges her teddy bears on the bed, just so. She puts on the matching pink clothes that Mama likes her to wear.
But Mama’s love flies so close to hate. And as her behaviour escalates, as she starts to unravel, so do the memories that Lily has kept locked away for so long.
She only wanted to be good, to piece Mama back together. But what if instead . . . Lily tears her apart?
Gripping and devastating, from a new voice that cuts as sharp as a knife, this is an unforgettable debut about a family gone bad.
