Lex Gracie doesn't want to think about her family. She doesn't want to think about the house of horrors she grew up in. And she doesn't want to think about her identity as child A: the girl who escaped, the sister who freed her brother from hell. But when her mother dies in prison and leaves Lex and her brother with the family home, she can no longer escape her past. Together with her sister, Evie, Lex seeks to turn the house into a community center for doing good. But first she must come to terms with her brother - and with the childhood they shared. What begins as a story of escape and survival turns into a fascinating psychological family tapestry about alliances and betrayals in sibling relationships. Little by little it becomes clear how powerful the spell of their shared family mythology is, which of them remains enslaved and who actually went free. Abigail Dean, a British lawyer and former bookseller, wrote Child A during a summer vacation before her thirtieth birthday, as a break from her hard work and to make herself happy. Upon its publication, the book became a bestseller. It was translated in 36 countries and adapted into a TV series. "Unbelievably electrifying debut!" Washington Post "Nothing short of amazing...rarely do you come across such a uniquely poignant plot, a psychological drama about family dynamics that doesn't let you down, one of the most beautiful I've read...a modern day classic." The New York Times "A powerful book at the heart of which is the mystery - not who committed a crime, but how to continue life after it... a roguelike that drives a story full of heart-shaking human nuances." The Times "Abigail Dean wastes no time diving into the ruins of the Gracie tribe, but emerging from them...a portrait of survival, humanity, intelligence and love." The Guardian
