Sasha | 5 comments I came across this book while doing work experience at Penguin Random House so I know it is definitely one of their books, I would say published in the last 2 or 3 years. I remember talking to someone about it because it had a very beautiful cover - colourful, possibly a photo of a forest/woods. The story is about a girl maybe around the age of 12 who has been brought up in a cult and then for some reason (possibly to get medication) has to leave and discover this whole world that she knew nothing about. Sorry it's not much to go on! p.s. i've searched it on google but can't find it, it is not Lauren Oliver's book 'Delirium'

Sasha | 5 comments Thank you for your recommendations but it's not that book as it was published in the past few years x

I actually came across this one trying to find The Girl Who Came From the Woods and it sounds really good as well
