True Grit meets The Road in this postapocalyptic psychological thriller--narrated by a young girl who has just learned that her adopted father may be a serial killer, and that she may be his next victim.

In the remote wilds of a ravaged land, Elka has been raised by a man who isn't her father. Since finding her wandering in the woods when she was seven, he has taught her how to hunt, shoot, set snares and start fires--everything she needs to survive. All she knows of the world outside is gleaned from whispers of a cataclysmic event that turned the clock back on civilization by a hundred and fifty years and reduced governments and technology to shambles, leaving men at the mercy of the elements--and each other.

Everything changes when Elka learns that the man she has been calling father is harboring a terrible secret. Armed with nothing but her knife and her wiles, she decides to escape his clutches and sets out on a long journey to the frozen north in the hope of finding her long-lost parents.

But as the trail of blood and bodies grows in her path, Elka realizes that daddy won't be letting his little girl go without a fight. If she's going to survive, she'll have to turn and confront not just him, but the truth about what he's turned her into.

About Beth Lewis

I live in a too-small flat in London and regularly battle mice, cold, and irritating neighbours. In my spare time, what little of it I have, I watch too much TV. In my not-so-spare time, I write. Professionally, I'm the Managing Editor of the Illustrated Books division of Titan Books.

My debut novel, THE WOLF ROAD, will be published by Borough Press (HarperCollins) in the UK and Crown (Random House) in the US, in June 2016. It's a literary thriller set in the remote wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.

Saying this was True Grit meets The Road was more than enough for me.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
