Here’s the thing about being Inside. Ain’t no one believes that they are.
Ele has never been Outside, but she knows it exists – she just has to prove it.
Her whole world is Inside. Trapped with her books and the Others and Him.
She has never seen a tree or felt the rain but that’s about to change. Ele’s getting out. For good.
In the spirit of Emma Donoghue’s Room, Outside is a poignant story of strength, friendship and unconditional love, even in the most challenging of circumstances.
Impossible to put down - this is a writer to watch.
This is well-written, sensitive on issues such as sexual abuse, and, whether in her tower or the outside world, Ele's voice and vision of the world will keep readers intrigued.
