9780099535263: Advice for Strays

All around Marnie, things are disappearing. Her father, a schizophrenic writer, has gone missing.The cats in the neighbourhood, her own Mr. Knuckles included, have vanished. Have they been kidnapped? Or has something scared them away?

Marnie could really do with some help from those she loves, but her best friend has her own problems and her sister Jess, seems to be unravelling. What's more worrying is that she's starting to feel a presence - a hot breath on her cheek, a wisp of mane - and it is getting more noticeable daily. Is she imagining things, or has someone - or some thing - come to help her?

An utterly original and hugely imaginative debut, Advice for Strays is a novel about love, loss, family and a very unusual friendship.

"An unusual and engaging novel" ( Daily Mail)

"This debut is a mystifying, funny and perplexing exploration of what happens when your life goes off the rails - and how to find your way back. Surprising and touching...will leave your imagination soaring" ( Stylist)

"Justine Kilkerr tells Marnie's story with great emotional precision and subtlety, as she journeys through the no-man's-land between reality and dreams...a delightful and whimsical novel, a most promising debut" (Thomas Tallon Tablet)
