Staff Reviews

This short, creative, unsettling novel follows an unnamed teenager narrator who is stuck on an island off the New Hampshire coast in a separatist community of retirees (self-named The Wrinklies) who begrudgingly let her stay after her grandmother dies and her parents cannot be reached. Season Butler writes with clarity, wit, and rich description. Her imagination is on clear display and produced an immersive, memorable read. The book is quiet and character-driven, exploring generational distrust & misunderstanding, the end of the world, and a person’s worth.

— Holly


A literary debut of bold imagination, this utterly original coming-of-age tale � marked by wrenching humor and staggering charisma � is about a young woman resisting the savagery of adulthood in a community of the elderly rejecting the promise of youth.
