Darling

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
A white teenage girl clashes with her new black stepmother in this debut reading group thriller.

Lola doesn't particularly want a new stepmother. Especially not one who has come out of nowhere and only been with her dad for three months. And she's not racist or anything, but since when did her dad fancy black women anyway?

Darling didn't particularly want a new stepdaughter. Especially not one as spiteful and spoilt as Lola. She does want Lola's dad, though. And he wants her, so that's that: Darling and Lola will just have to get used to each other.

Unless Lola can find a way to get rid of Darling.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"Dark, provocative and a refreshing take on the psychological thriller genre. Darling and Lola are both brilliant creations." - Emma Curtis

"I devoured Darling in a couple of days; told by two unforgettable female narrators, it's urgent, original and genuinely unputdownable." - Clare Fisher

"A page-turning thriller that grips the reader with its twisty exploration of the complex relationship between step mother and step daughter. I read through the night to discover the dramatic denouement." - Kate Hamer

"A brilliant and surprising chameleon of a novel. I was so absorbed in the voices of Darling and Lola that the twists and turns of their story left me reeling." - Eleanor Wasserberg
