Product description


‘It is rare for a novel to be so deft yet devastating. A story of terrible control but also irresistible humanity, Girl A is a portrait of survival, intelligence and love, and it will stay with me for a long time. A book of deep feeling, and an astonishing achievement.' JESSIE BURTON

‘Girl A isn’t just an astonishingly accomplished debut novel, it’s a masterpiece. With its haunting prose and devastatingly complicated characters, this book asks the reader, in visceral, heartbreaking detail, what we would do to survive. Lex’s story will stay with me for a very long time.’ LOUISE O’NEILL

‘Terrifyingly gripping.’ SUSIE STEINER

‘Gripping, beautifully written perfection.’ SOPHIE HANNAH

‘Girl A is truly my idea of the perfect book: gripping and beautifully written, with complex (and often chilling) characters that are fully realised, and hard to forget. I'll be thinking about this for a long, long time, so… Believe the hype – it really is that good." KATIE LOWE

‘Beautifully written, compulsively readable.’ JEN WILLIAMS

‘Girl A is an absolute masterpiece: harrowing, emotive, confronting and beautifully written.
An absolute scorcher of a debut.’ EMMA GANNON

‘Books like GIRL A don’t come along often; it gives you no option but to put your entire life on pause. Abigail Dean is an astonishing new talent and has written a searing, gripping tale of love, loss and survival that exposes the bare bones of humanity and explores how victims cope long after the headlines stop rolling. One of the most compelling novels I’ve read in a long time.’ STACEY HALLS

‘Girl A is extraordinary. Pitch black, forensic, and uncomfortably riveting, but with such a thread of humour and tenderness. You race through it, then it lingers.’ BETH MORREY

‘GIRL A is absolutely pitch perfect. It's dark and harrowing and completely absorbing, and as soon as I finished, I wanted to pick it back up and read it all over again.’ ELLE CROFT
