From the author of the bestselling THE GIRL OF INK & STARS
comes a moving, enthralling and heartbreaking tale of finding
your way home - shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the BluePeter
Book Award.

'The Island at the End of Everything
is such a fiercely kind and generous book, and so finely-wrought
and so full of light ... brilliant.' KATHERINE RUNDELL
'...
a beautiful, haunting tale of leprosy, lepidoptery
and loyalty.' FRANCES HARDINGE
Amihan lives
on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants - including her
mother - have leprosy. Ami loves her home - with its blue seas
and lush forests, Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival
of malicious government official Mr Zamora changes her world
forever: islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Banished
across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds a strange
and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her
home before it's too late?
