'Combining an intriguing mystery with political scrutiny, Cosslett reveals how four walls can mean so much more than bricks and mortar' -Stylist
'A brave, beautiful, coming of age novel - full of generational conflict, trauma, and Bohemianism. Truly a writer to watch' -Nina Stibbe
'Surprising and keenly observed, this is an original contemporary presentation of London: nostalgic but also brutal, with deft and poignant cultural comparisons. A jagged, bold, time-twisting dazzler!' -Emma Jane Unsworth

More about the book: Having dropped out of university, Harmony returns to the site of the urban commune where she lived as a child, now divided into flats.

As the London riots explode in the streets, Harmony begins to discover what really happened at Longhope twenty years ago. Can she grow up at last, and build her own future?
