We Begin at the End

Published by: Zaffre, Bonnier

Small stones thrown into a pond cause big ripples and that’s certainly the case in this wonderfully realised story set in a small American town. With an unforgettable central character in thirteen-year-old Duchess, and a strong cast of characters and personalities, this is a truly memorable read suffused with familial breakdown, attachment, guilt and redemption.
