Description

Is this teenage girl a demonised victim or cold-blooded killer...? We Need to Talk About Kevin meets The Secret History in this gripping novel about secrets and murder, soon to be a Netflix TV series! Quicksand was Sweden's bestselling novel of 2017. 

The air is hazy and grey with gunpowder smoke. Everyone has been shot but me. I haven't got so much as a bruise....

Is Maja a normal eighteen-year-old, the poster girl-next-door, popular and excelling at her schoolwork, caught in the middle of a terrible tragedy? Or is she the most reviled teenager in the country? 

Either way, everyone knows her name. She has spent nine excruciating months in jail, awaiting trial for a mass murder that killed her boyfriend and her best friend, and now the time has come for her to enter the courtroom... 

***What people are saying about QUICKSAND***

'Compelling and brutally candid, especially about modern adolescence, this is not a comfortable book, but the story is so superbly told that it lingers in the mind long after the jury's verdictDaily Mail
  
'A suspenseful and addictive experience... [Giolito] expertly delves into the fickle psyche of the media and how they can change a story's narrative with one headline and she shames the press's tendency to report wild conjecture over facts...
