Internationally bestselling author Jessie Burton reimagines the story of Medusa in a gorgeously illustrated, feminist YA retelling.
If I told you that I’d killed a man with a glance, would you wait to hear the rest? The why,
the how, what happened next?
Exiled to a far-flung island by the whims of the gods, Medusa has little company except the snakes that adorn her head instead of hair. But when a charmed, beautiful boy called Perseus arrives on the island, her lonely existence is disrupted with the force of a supernova, unleashing desire, love, betrayal . . . and destiny itself.
From Jessie Burton, internationally bestselling author of The Miniaturist and The Muse, comes a dazzling, lyrical, feminist YA retelling of the Greek myth with stunning, full-color illustrations from Olivia Lomenech Gill. Illuminating the fierce, vulnerable, determined young girl behind the legend, this book brings Medusa alive for a new generation.
