Fierce Little Thing by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

How far will they go to bury their secret forever?

Saskia was a damaged, lonely teenager when she arrived at the lakeside commune called Home. She was entranced by Abraham, Home's charismatic leader and the four other teens who lived there, her best and only friends. Two decades later, Saskia’s life is torn open by threatening letters. Unless they all return, the terrible thing they did as teenagers will be revealed.

A moody, gripping, and profoundly haunting story…Beverly-Whittemore renders a wild, treacherous world and invites us to stand perilously close to the edge. Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six

Gorgeously written and brilliantly structured, a suspenseful, evocative coming of age tale about the unique worth of old friendships and the profound challenge of finding your true place in the world. Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia

I experienced this novel with my whole body…and felt charged and changed by its explorations of the ways our adult lives keep circling the wounds and betrayals of childhood—as well as its sharp, tender insistence on the ways darkness and beauty sit side by side. Leslie Jamison, New York Times bestselling author of The Empathy Exams
