Waiting On Wednesday #150 - Foxlowe

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


Foxlowe - Eleanor Wasserberg
ISBN - 9780008164089
Publisher - Fourth Estate
Release date - June 2 2016

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.


I have no idea where I found this or whether I saw the cover first or read the synopsis but I fell in love immediately. The cover is stunning, the synopsis sounds crazy and basically I'd just like this now please :)
