Originally published: 2010.
12-year-old Minguillo, who has already contrived to lose one sibling, is listening to the birth-cries of his new sister Marcella, a threat to his inheritance. Minguillo's jealousy will condemn his sister to a series of fates as a cripple, a madwoman and a nun. But Marcella is not quite the soft target Minguillo imagines.

Reading this was a bit like watching a horror film from behind a cushion. Really horrific in places but absolutely compelling. I loved it.
