By Barkworth, Hazel
A dazzling debut novel of a dark love affair, set to ignite debate in summer 2020. The perfect read for those who loved Notes on a Scandal, The Girls or The Lemon Grove. They meet at school. He is wild and fascinating. He understands her like no one else can. Theirs is a love sto...ry that was never supposed to happen. It would be fair to assume this book is about fifteen-year-old Lily, who disappears at the beginning of a stifling, sultry summer. But this isn't the story you think you're reading... Heatstroke is an intense exploration of crossed boundaries, power and betrayal, and the dark lengths people will go to in the name of love.Read more
