Kate Weinberg - The Truants (2nd Hand Paperback)
An Observer & i Book of The Year.
Jess Walker, middle child of a middle class family, has perfected the art of vanishing in plain sight. But when she arrives at a concrete university campus under flat, grey, East Anglian skies, her world flares with colour.
Drawn into a tightly-knit group of rule breakers - led by their maverick teacher, Lorna Clay - Jess begins to experiment with a new version of herself. But the dynamic between the friends begins to darken as they share secrets, lovers and finally a tragedy.
Soon Jess is thrown up against the question she fears most: what is the true cost of an extraordinary life?

'While Donna Tartt's The Secret History is a clear influence, it's Agatha Christie whose work is most explicitly referenced, stoking an ominous sense of impending calamity.' - The Mail on Sunday.
'A coming-of-age story and campus novel rolled into one, it is given greater depth by the shadow of Agatha Christie, who stalks the pages. With deft characterisation, plenty of mystery and twists in the tale, it had me gripped.' - The Daily Mail.
'An impressive debut.' - The Times.
"This is my ideal summer/beach/switch-off reading: it's literate without being literary and has enough love, sex, desire, secrets, death, grief and obsession to keep the pages turning rapidly." - Goodreads Review.
Kate Weinberg was born and lives in London. She studied English at Oxford and creative writing in East Anglia. She has worked as a slush pile reader, a bookshop assistant, a journalist, and a ghost writer. The Truants is her first novel.
