Foxlowe is a crumbling old house in the moors, a wild and magical place. For Green, it is home, and everything she knows. Outside, people live in little square houses, with unhappy families and boring jobs. At Foxlowe, Green runs free in the corridors and gardens, among the goat shed and fruit trees, the Standing Stones and the moors. Outside, people are corrupted by money. At Foxlowe the Family share everything. Outside, the Bad is everywhere. At Foxlowe, the Family are safe. As long as they do what Freya says, and perform the rituals correctly. But as Green's little sister, Blue, grows up, she shows more and more interest in the Outside, and then she starts to talk about becoming a Leaver.

This quickly rose to one of my favourite books of all time. I don't quite know what I loved about it, but it is gorgeous, beautiful, and just...everything you want a book to be. Heartbreaking, and nauseating and lovely.
