Too Dark to See

Chloë Heuch

Firefly Press

After the death of her mother, 16-year-old Kay is on a mission to self-destruct, risking her friendships, her school work and herself in her drive not to feel anything.

Needing to save money, her father moves them to Blackmoss Mountain, to Kay’s disgust. But she finds new freedom in this barren landscape, befriending the semi-wild ponies that live there, and meeting Sion, the son of the farmer who owns the ponies, who is also roaming the mountains to escape home.

Sion and Kay are drawn slowly into a secret and intense relationship, meeting in a ruined cottage on the mountain. But when Sion’s terrifying, abusive father finally finds them, will Kay lose everything again?
