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 Blue Peter 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 'Exquisite.' EMMA CARROLL 'Truly a stunning book.' PETER BUNZL 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.
