The Winnowing

The Winnowing

Marivic and her best friend, Saren, are about to go through the uncertain winnowing procedure, a now inevitable — but dangerous — part of adolescence. Can they both survive?

A gripping exploration of growing up, love and loss, The Winnowing is a page-turning adventure that will have readers rooting for their new hero, Marivic Stone, as they unravel the horror and intrigue of a world at once familiar but with a chilling strangeness lurking beneath the everyday.
