MSt alumna Kiran Millwood Hargrave’s The Island at the End of Everything has been shortlisted for the Costa award and the Blue Peter award. It has also been named by Frances Hardinge as one of The Guardian’s Best Books of 2017
From the publisher:
“From the bestselling author of The Girl of Ink & Stars comes an irresistibly poetic, bittersweet and heartbreaking tale of finding your way home.
Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants – including her mother – have leprosy. Ami loves her home – with its blue seas and lush forests, Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival of malicious government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever: islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Banished across the sea, she’s desperate to return, and finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it’s too late?”
