Kate Hamer

Friday 11th October 13:40 - 14:40 | Northwood House

From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Red Coat comes a raw and powerful novel. Phoebe stands on Pulteney Bridge, tights gashed from toe to thigh. The shock of mangled metal and blood-stained walls flashes through her mind as she tries to cover her face so she won’t be recognised. It wouldn’t do to be spotted looking like this. She’s missing a shoe. She feels sick. Phoebe thought murder and murder happened. Thoughts are just thoughts they said. Now she knows they were wrong.   Crushed, a psychological thriller, is the story of three girls, who over the course of one long hot summer find their friendship pushed to a breaking point as one of them convinces herself that her thoughts can influence events in the world around them. As their love tips over into obsession and their naivety into wilful blindness all three girls wield more power than they could possibly ever have imagined, with devastating consequences.
