Melody Janie is hidden. Whether alone in her caravan in Bones Break or spying on the tourists who walk the Cornish cliffs she calls her own, she sees everything and yet remains unknown. When a stranger, Richard Brown, enters her life she is forced to confront both him but also th...e terrible tragedies of her past. Culminating in an unexpected twist, The Lip is an ultimately hopeful debut novel exploring themes of childhood, isolation and mental health, told in the unique and unforgettable voice of Melody Janie. 'All of this is Bones Break. All of this is mine. I know every inch of it; I know it as intimately as the seagulls. I stand at dead-centre, my feet teetering on the edge of the lip. Below, the thundering tattoo of waves on rock. Wind catches the tips of my hair, lifting them above my ribs: less force than it takes to knock me down; enough to make me right myself with a step to the left, and then another back again. Here on the lip, it is vital to know where my feet are.'
