Almost English

In this extraordinary new novel 16 year-old Marina realises she's made a terrible mistake when she arrives at Combe Abbey, a traditional English public school for which her family have sacrificed everything. As a semi-Hungarian Londoner, she struggles to find her identity; and her mother, an alien in this strange universe, has her own painful secrets to deal with. She certainly isn't noticing that things at Combe Abbey are starting to go terribly wrong. Nominated for the Man Book Prize 2013.
