Johanna Braithwaite, the english bookseller of Orell Füssli Basel, recommends:
Kate Weinberg: „The Truants“ CHF: 27.90
This coming-of-age debut by Kate Weinberg is a great mixture between Agatha Christie's murderous love triangles and Donna Tartt's dynamics in „The Secret History“.
Jess Walker has mastered the art of vanishing in plain sight to perfection, her being the middle child in a middle class family but when she starts first year at university her world flares with colour and new opportunities as she is soon drawn into a group of rule breakers and their charismatic teacher Lorna Clay. But soon the dynamics between the friends begins to turn sinister as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy...
A remarkable first book that will hopefully mark the start of a great literary career.
