The extraordinarily moving, funny and original new novel from the author of the rapturously acclaimed BLOOM. “You were born raging, Frances Frida Ripley. That’s what happens when you’re born in a storm.” Frances’s parents were not prepared for her birth: they had a blanket and an easel and some paint, but not anything useful, like a car or a phone.

So it’s no wonder Frankie has always had a temper. She was born on a BEACH, in a STORM. What Frances was not prepared for was dying in a freak natural disaster that wiped out her whole town.

Waking up 100 years later, Frances finds a whole load of new things to be angry about. And that’s before the visitors start turning up, treating her home like it’s a tourist attraction. Which it is.

Only there are worse people out there than tourists… and they’re coming for Frankie. Frankie is about to discover that there are things more important than herself – and that anger has its uses.

Because when you have a storm inside you – sometimes the only thing to do is let it out…
