Are you ready for a trip behind the veil? What exactly is Cassidy and what is her purpose? And how on earth did Jacob, a ghost, bring her back from the dead? And who is the strange girl who’s also staying at The Lanes End and why does Cassidy get the feeling she can see Jacob too?
Sawkill Girls is a narrative of trauma, abuse, grief and everything in between. It's about compacted generational trauma and grief and the power of girls coming together to fight the monsters of the world, even when those monsters are human men.
Sadie, the character, is all sharp edges and dark shadows and will definitely cut you as a warning. Sadie, the book, isn’t any different. This story follows two people. The most important person is Sadie. 19 years old and on the hunt for the man who she knows killed her little sister.
Complex and honest, Anger is a Gift reminds oppressed people that they have every right to the feeling they are often demonised for: Rage. Anger is a Gift packs so much into its pages.

He’s had enough, he’s hurting and angry and he’s ready to fight back.
