Cuckoo by Gretchen Felker-Martin (Pre-Order)
Schedule publication date - 11th June 2024
Invasion of the Bodysnatchers meets Tell Me I'm Worthless in this relentless and visceral horror about a group of queer kids trying to survive the conversion camp from hell, from the author of the critically-acclaimed Manhunt.
Camp Resolution, surrounded by hundreds of miles of Utah desert. A place to help boys and girls stay on the straight and narrow, where they can learn the value of a hard day's work, get a decent education and where indiscretions can be beaten out of them on a whim.
For Shelby, a young trans woman struggling to find her place in the world, Camp Resolution represents everything she has spent her life trying to escape. But Camp Resolution is not all it seems. The lessons they are all taught make no sense, and the counsellors act odd, even for camp counsellors.
At night, Shelby can hear a voice speaking to her over the mountains, and soon, the residents of the camp discover its terrible secret. To stay alive and escape, the residents of the camp must learn to trust one another - but that is a difficult thing when there are cuckoos in the nest, hungry and out for blood.
