Description of this Electronic Book

"This is well-written, sensitive on issues such as sexual abuse, and, whether in her tower or the outside world, Ele's voice and vision of the world will keep readers intrigued." Books for Keeps 'Impossible to put down - this is a writer to watch.' C.J. Skuse _____ Here's the thing about being Inside. Ain't no one believes that they are.Ele has never been Outside, but she knows it exists - she just has to prove it. Her whole world is Inside. Trapped with her books and the Others and Him. She has never seen a tree or felt the rain but that's about to change. Ele's getting out. For good. ____In the spirit of Emma Donoghue's Room, Outside is a poignant story of strength, friendship and unconditional love, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review ...this is no fantasy book but a clever exploration of how we tell ourselves certain narratives in order to make sense of our world. It's a book about speaking your truth without shame, coming to terms with your past and giving a voice to those who have been silenced or mistreated.
