A meditation on grief and family and the journey from the transfiguring trauma of bereavement, back to oneself.

In 2005, Chloe Higgins was 17 years old. She and her mother, Rhonda, stayed home so that she could revise for her HSC exams while her two younger sisters, Carlie and Lisa, went skiing with their father. On the way back from their trip, their car veered off the highway, flipped on its side and burst into flames. Both her sisters were killed. Their father walked away from the accident with only minor injuries. This audiobook is about what happened next. In a memoir of breathtaking power, Chloe Higgins describes the heartbreaking aftermath of that one terrible day. It is a story of grieving, and learning to leave grief behind, for anyone who has ever loved, and lost.

'An urgent, poetic and skinless howl of a book.'
Lee Kofman

'An astounding new voice whose work mines the slippery regions between grief, sex, love, parents and children. This book is a rare find.'
Felicity Castagna

'A tender and heartfelt book, exploring the intricacies and long aftermath of trauma and grief with great frankness and directness. Its honest and exacting exploration of what happens to the body and the self in grief is deeply moving, without being excoriating, and the writing is both lyrical and tough - Higgins has a distinctive and accomplished voice, and this book is a beautiful achievement.'
