     Latest Arrival :: The Island of Lost Girls


Book Title: The Island of Lost Girls
Desc:

This is the story of Meiji - the only girl who has remained untouched and unmutilated in a country that has savaged its entire female population. Having saved her from certain death in the new Dark Age that has come upon the world, her guardian, Youngest, has transported her to the only place where she can remain safe - an Island where wounded girls are, sometimes literally, stitched back together and given a new life.But the Island itself is a menacing place, and Meiji may be in more danger than ever before. To see what has become of his beloved girl, Youngest must find a way to infiltrate its odd environs while keeping the constantly assaulting voice in his head at bay. His struggles against the surreal inhabitants of a world gone wrong and with his own transformed identity only serve to steel his efforts to find the girl, and escape once more...The Island of Lost Girls showcases, yet again, Manjula Padmanabhan's genius at creating searing landscapes and alternate, sometimes brutal, worlds while reaffirming the beauty and the ugliness, the cruelty and the tremendous compassion that essentially make us human.
