Inspired by Victor Hugo’s classic, Les Miserables, the heartbreaking story of street girl Eponine.

Paris, 1832

A girl lies alone in the darkness, clutching a letter to her heart.

Eponine remembers being a child: her swing and the peach tree, and the baby brother she loved. But mostly she remembers being miserable. Taught to lie and cheat, and to hate the one girl, Cosette, who might have been her friend.

Now, at sixteen, the two girls meet again, and Eponine has one more chance. But what is the price of friendship — the love of a boy?

"Her prose is extraordinarily lyrical: haunted, dreamlike, and precise . . . Fletcher’s words are undeniably beautiful and her themes are profound." —The Sunday Times (UK)
