An outrageous plot of villainy starring seven brilliant young girls
Julie Berry grew up as the youngest of seven children on a 50-acre farm in America complete with pigs, chickens, turkeys, rabbits, and oodles of cats and dogs. As a child she took beloved books to bed like other children took teddy bears, nestling down under the covers with them. She still does this today, and her patient husband stacks them on his bedside table before turning off the light. She has written four novels with ALL THE TRUTH THAT's IN ME being nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2014. She lives with her husband and four sons in Massachusetts.

Stunning. Hilarious. And wholly origial. If David Sedaris and Agatha Christie had a child, it would be Julie Berry.
