Originally published: London: Harvill Secker.

Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange)Anna is five.

Her little brother, Stick, is almost three. They are camping with their parents in Algonquin Park, in three thousand square miles of wilderness.

It's the perfect family trip. But then Anna awakes in the night to the sound of something moving in the shadows.

Her father is terrified. Her mother is screaming. Then, silence. Alone in the woods, it is Anna who has to look after Stick, battling hunger and the elements to stay alive.

Narrated by Anna, this is white-knuckle storytelling that captures the fear, wonder and bewilderment of our worst nightmares - and the power of one girl's enduring love for her family.
