Description

This powerful, tender debut novel tells the story of the complicated fallout when a girl is plucked from her foster home into a dazzling new life in London as a model. A biting look at the realities of the comforting Cinderella stories we tell ourselves, Fit follows its characters, young and old, as they attempt to follow the harsh rules of a stratified world. The book is set in contemporary Britain where children starve and the gulf between rich and poor is vast. Moving, tragic, but ultimately hopeful, Fit takes an unflinching look at life in foster care and the ways in which poverty and neglect can echo throughout a life. The novel is written by a highschool teacher and advocate with firsthand experience with these issues.

Fit was the unanimously chosen winner of the 2020 Northern Book Prize.
