9780099516163: Out of Breath

Flynn is a thirteen-year-old girl caught between her violent, out-of-control brother, Sam, and her mother, who is struggling to cope. And then, one impossibly hot night, a strange half-feral boy called Alex turns up at the bottom of Flynn's garden. Alex is one of three runaways; there's also Diana, who has just had a baby, and Mouse, who is only six and already an accomplished arsonist.

With Flynn and Sam in tow, the rag tag group of children venture into the deserted countryside, pursued by a terrifying and unseen man. Deep in the woods, they stumble across an abandoned cottage which seems to offer refuge but soon begins to reveal its dark and terrifying secrets...

Review:

"A sweetly corrupt exploration of the childhood fantasy of running away... Myerson is a beautiful conjurer of subtly disturbing atmospheres...haunting" (Jane Shilling Sunday Telegraph)

"A mythical rite-of-passage novel... mysterious and multi-layered" ( Independent)

"Compulsively readable and richly inventive... bittersweet, authentic and loveable" ( Guardian)

"Myerson is a surefooted guide along the wobbly line that separates the real from the surreal ... Myerson captures [adolescence] beautifully in Flynn's compelling voice. The opening of the novel is crisp and immediate, the prose simple and direct ...More than just a coming-of-age story, Out of Breath is a timely reminder about the importance of not growing up too quickly" ( New Statesman)

"A truly original read, transcending many of the usual boundaries found in fiction" ( Scotland on Sunday)

Book Description:

A story told by a young girl featuring a cast of children left to make their own world.
