One winter's night, two young girls venture out into a snowy neighbourhood to play a game of hide and seek. Only one will return home safely. But which will it be?
Will it be melancholy Clara, the one who lags behind, the one with the runny nose and the terrible secret? Or will it be playful Audrey, the one with the mischievous smile, the one who never looks for trouble because it's always looking for her?
From the author of the bestselling novella The Sickroom comes a dark story about the weight of loss, the importance of friendship, and the courage of letting go.
Two little girls: one who wants to be saved and one yearning to be lost. Who will win the game?
