Comments & Further Information

This is a Publisher’s Copy (PC) of the signed numbered limited edition hardback produced by SST with a stated first edition May 2023 and a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  The title was previously published by Orion in 2020.   UNREAD.

A PC copy is a book that is identical to the Signed, Numbered, Limited Edition in all respects bar one: on the limitation page, instead of having a number, it has ‘PC’ written where the number would normally appear. PC copies (sometimes called ‘presentation copies’) are normally given by the publisher to those involved in the production of the book, eg the author, illustrator, the person who writes the introduction, etc.

The book is SIGNED by Josh Malerman and Ben Baldwin (cover and interior art) on the limitation page.

SYNOPSIS:   “Boys are being trained at one school for geniuses, girls at another. Neither knows the other exists – until now. The New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box invites you into a world of secrets and chills in a coming-of-age story like no other.

J is a student at a school deep in a forest far away from the rest of the world.

J is one of only twenty-six students, all of whom think of the school’s enigmatic founder as their father. J’s peers are the only family he has ever had. The students are being trained to be prodigies of art, science, and athletics, and their life at the school is all they know – and all they are allowed to know.

But J suspects that there is something out there, beyond the pines, that the founder does not want him to see, and he’s beginning to ask questions. What is the real purpose of this place? Why can the students never leave? And what secrets is their father hiding from them?

Meanwhile, on the other side of the forest, in a school very much like J’s, a girl named K is asking the same questions. J has never seen a girl, and K has never seen a boy. As K and J work to investigate the secrets of their two strange schools, they come to discover something even more mysterious: each other.”
