When Zoe Barry walks into Professor David Connolly's office and announces that she is his daughter, he is left reeling. Suddenly his family - imperfect, flawed but working - is trying to find space for someone new. But Zoe's stories don't quite add up, and lies become indistinguishable from truths.
The family struggle to make sense of whether she is a sister, a daughter, a friend, an enemy. But no one could have expected where it all might end. Because they have let into their home a girl that they do not know. And now everything they have built has begun to violently, determinedly, break apart.

I came across a recommendation for this on deadgoodbooks and thought I would give it a try. So glad I did as I loved it. It is not a book with lots of twists, turns and shocks, but it has a sense of menace underlying the story. It's well written, with well drawn characters and great narration.
