CoverSprigs by Brannavan Gnanalingam, published by Lawrence & Gibson

"Sprigs is a powerful and challenging story. Priya is a fifteen-year-old who goes to a party with rugby players and other kids, and is attacked in an 'incident'. We hear words from different people, and power and privilege combine to protect the guilty. When we hear from Priya herself - her voice is so compelling it cuts through and leaves the reader devastated."
