“Dazzling…”–The New York Times
Voted MOST ANTICIPATED NOVEL of 2019 by both Bustle and Nylon
A highly anticipated debut–from a writer hailed as “a combination of Denis Johnson and Joan Didion” (Dazed)–brilliantly captures the intimate triumph of a girl’s struggle to become the woman she knows she can be. Ambitious, talented fourteen-year-old honors student Juliet is poised for success at her Southern California high school. However, she soon finds herself on an increasingly frightening spiral of drug use, self-harm, and mental illness that lands her in a remote therapeutic boarding school, where she must ultimately find the inner strength to survive.
