The Vanishing Moment

Margaret Wild
NZD $22.99

If you could live a different version of your life, would you take the chance? From the award-winning author Margaret Wild, this spellbinding story places two young women at the turning point in their lives, and each must choose to accept the life she has, or to leap into one she might yet live.

A moment. That's all it takes. A bewildering moment when the world spins upside-down, and then life can never be the same again.

Arrow was just a girl when she saw something no child should have to see. And Marika is living a sister's worst nightmare.

When Arrow and Marika come together in a small seaside town, they meet a mysterious 'magician' who says he knows how to escape the now and step into a new future.

A brilliant and bittersweet story of loss and courage, with a surprising twist.
