Foxlowe

(2016)
A novel by

 
 
A chilling, compulsive debut about group mentality, superstition and betrayal - and a utopian commune gone badly wrong.

We were the Family, and Foxlowe was our home. There was me - my name is Green - and my little sister, Blue. There was October, who we called Toby, and Ellensia, Dylan, Liberty, Pet and Egg. There was Richard, of course, who was one of the Founders. And there was Freya.

We were the Family, but we weren't just an ordinary family. We were a new, better kind of family. We didn't need to go to school, because we had a new, better kind of education. We shared everything. We were close to the ancient way of living and the ancient landscape. We knew the moors and the standing stones. We celebrated the solstice in the correct way, with honey and fruit and garlands of fresh flowers. We knew the Bad, and we knew how to keep it away.

And we had Foxlowe, our home. Where we were free. There really was no reason for anyone to want to leave.

Praise for this book

"Foxlowe is gorgeous and seductive. The story propels you toward an ending that feels both shocking and inevitable, and the last line is a stunner. I was completely gripped." - Flynn Berry

"Mesmerizing, gripping, and beautifully written. It completely sweeps you up from beginning to end. I loved it." - Kate Hamer

"I thoroughly enjoyed this vivid and claustrophobic coming-of-age debut." - Tasha Kavanagh

"An excellent debut . . . Wasserberg has a strong and distinctive voice." - Clare Mackintosh

"With echoes of both Shirley Jackson and Emily Bronte, Wasserberg has written a terrifying coming-of-age novel about childhood’s pull on the imagination and loyalty to memory. Foxlowe creeped me out of my skin." - Rebecca Scherm
