The End of Everything

A mesmerising emotional thriller for fans of The Virgin Suicides and The Lovely Bones.

Megan Abbott

A close-knit street, the clink of glass on glass, summer heat. Two girls on the brink of adolescence, throwing cartwheels on the grass. Two girls who tell each other everything. Until one shimmering afternoon, one of them disappears.

Lizzie is left with her dread and her loss, and with a fear that won't let her be. Had Evie tried to give her a hint of what was coming, a clue that she failed to follow?

Caught between her imaginary guilt, her sense of betrayal, her own powerful need, and the needs of the adults around her, Lizzie's voice is as unforgettable as her story is arresting. This is no ordinary tale of innocence lost . . .

'A gripping and disturbing novel, a fever dream of adolescent desire and adult complicity' Tom Perrotta

'Deft, enthralling and intelligent' Kate Atkinson
