The Other Half of Augusta Hope

The Other Half of Augusta Hope


Shortlisted for the Author's Club Best First Novel Award

'A therapeutic dose of high-strength emotion' GUARDIAN

Augusta Hope has never felt like she fits in.

At six, she's memorising the dictionary. At seven, she's correcting her teachers. At eight, she spins the globe and picks her favourite country on the sound of its name: Burundi.

And now that she's an adult, Augusta has no interest in the goings-on of the small town where she lives with her parents and her beloved twin sister, Julia.

When an unspeakable tragedy upends everything in Augusta's life, she's propelled headfirst into the unknown. She's determined to find where she belongs - but what if her true home, and heart, are half a world away?

'It's going to be all over every book club in Britain before you can say Burundi'
