內容簡介


有時候力量不等同於勇氣,有時候離開不是唯一逃離的方式,有時候,光活下來是不夠的。泰晤士報盛讚:今年必讀的小說初啼之作,史蒂芬金大力推薦。

十四歲的Turtle與嚴苛殘酷的爸爸住在森林裡,對野外瞭若指掌、熟悉槍法,過著與世隔絕的生活。她長期受到過度保護的爸爸控制與身心虐待,自我厭惡的她與人保持距離,直到遇見幽默的高中生雅各,才發現外面存在著從未想像過的生活,決定利用爸爸教授的求生技能逃離……

描繪青少女在艱辛處境下的內心掙扎,如何在拯救自我的旅程中,勇敢蛻變為英雄。

"Poised to become the breakout debut of the year." —The New York Times
 
"Nearly impossible to put down." —NPR

"The word 'masterpiece' has been cheapened by too many blurbs, but My Absolute Darling absolutely is one." —Stephen King

A brilliant and immersive, all-consuming read about one fourteen-year-old girl's heart-stopping fight for her own soul.

Turtle Alveston is a survivor. At fourteen, she roams the woods along the northern California coast. The creeks, tide pools, and rocky islands are her haunts and her hiding grounds, and she is known to wander for miles. But while her physical world is expansive, her personal one is small and treacherous: Turtle has grown up isolated since the death of her mother, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin. Her social existence is confined to the middle school (where she fends off the interest of anyone, student or teacher, who might penetrate her shell) and to her life with her father.

Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high-school boy who tells jokes, lives in a big clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. And for the first time, the larger world begins to come into focus: her life with Martin is neither safe nor sustainable. Motivated by her first experience with real friendship and a teenage crush, Turtle starts to imagine escape, using the very survival skills her father devoted himself to teaching her. What follows is a harrowing story of bravery and redemption. With Turtle's escalating acts of physical and emotional courage, the reader watches, heart in throat, as this teenage girl struggles to become her own hero—and in the process, becomes ours as well.

Shot through with striking language in a fierce natural setting, My Absolute Darling is an urgently told, profoundly moving read that marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.
