9780007283590: The Ant Colony

A stunning new look for the irresistible novel from Guardian-award-winning novelist, Jenny Valentine.

Number 33 Georgiana Street houses many people and yet seems home to none. To runaway Sam it is a place to disappear. To Bohemia, it's just another blip between crises, as her mum ricochets off the latest boyfriend. Old Isobel acts like she owns the place, even though it actually belongs to Steve in the basement, who is always looking to squeeze in yet another tenant. Life there is a kind of ordered chaos. Like ants, they scurry about their business, crossing paths, following their own tracks, no questions asked.

But it doesn't take much to upset the balance. Dig deep enough and you'll find that everyone has something to hide…

Review:

“…Valentine writes so beautifully and so convincingly that you’re instantly swept into the mystery of these people’s lives…” – The Times

“This is a fine piece of slice-of-life fiction, warm but not cosy, neatly structured and credible.” – Financial Times

“…a deeply humane story that is both witty and entertaining.” – Daily Telegraph

"A captivating novel from a compelling new voice in teen fiction…hilarious and dramatic in turns." Liverpool Echo

"I loved every page of this extraordinary book; a completely unique and involving story…a great book which deserves to be read over and over again." Redhouse Review, Hannah Pitts age 15

About the Author:

Jenny Valentine moved house every two years when she was growing up. She has just moved house again, probably not for the last time. She worked in a wholefood shop in Primrose Hill for fifteen years where she met many extraordinary people and sold more organic loaves than there are words in her first novel, Finding Violet Park, which won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize in 2007. She has also worked as a teaching assistant and a jewellery maker. She studied English Literature at Goldsmiths College, which almost put her off reading but not quite.
