“My parents didn’t seem the sort of people who would end up killing someone. Everyone would say that – except the boy who dies, who isn’t saying anything. He carried his story with him off the edges of the earth, like the others who died along the way.”

This weeks book is…
“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?”
