The story of Nina X's imprisonment, and her path to eventual freedom, is compelling and chilling and all too believable. She is a character to stand alongside Offred of The Handmaid's Tale and Jack of Room
Winner of the Saltire Literary Award Fiction Book of the Year

"Literary gold... Morrison has published his masterpiece" Sunday Times

"Sensational. Like nothing I've ever read. A tour de force" Ian Rankin

"This moving tale of growing up in a Maoist cult, and the traumatic aftermath, explores ideas of freedom, control and identity with warmth and humour" Observer

Nina X has never been outside. She has never met another child.
Nina X has no books, no toys and no privacy.
Nina X has no idea what the outside world is like.
Nina X has a lot to learn.

Nina X has no mother and no father; she has Comrade Chen, and Comrades Uma, Jeni and Ruth. Her closest emotional connection is with the birds she sees when she removes the plasterboard that covers her bedroom window. Comrade Chen has named her The Project; she is being raised entirely separated from the false gods of capitalism and the cult of the self. He has her record everything in her journal, to track her thoughts. To keep her ideology pure, her words are erased, over and over again. But that was before. Now Nina is in Freedom, and all the rules have changed. She has to remember that everything is opposite to what she was told, and yet Freedom seems to be a very confusing and dangerous place.
