When eleven-year-old Indigo and her older brother Robin arrive in South Africa to stay with their father, they find a luxury lifestyle that is a world away from their modest existence back in England. But Indigo is uneasy in the foreign landscape and confused by the family’s silence surrounding her mother’s recent death. Unable to find solace in either new or old faces, she begins to harbour violent suspicions in place of the truth.

"Vincent brilliantly captures the bluntness and inquisitive nature of a child... Back home in the UK, Indigo and her brother are looked after by their grandparents and Vincent wonderfully captures the pure relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. Alarm Girl is a book you will love at any age... Hannah Vincent is clearly an exciting talent." - Sweet Delights
