Welcome to the School of Here, an unsettling, stifling and peculiar place that is nonetheless familiar to us all. A place full of codes and unspoken rules that are passed down from year to year.
With Here, and Only Here (Ici et seulement ici), the author of the international sensation The Mirror Visitor Quartet, Christelle Dabos, offers us a unique, dark and disturbing novel that shines a light on the angst of being a teenager and just how difficult school can be.
Christelle Dabos was born on the Côte d’Azur in 1980 and grew up in a home filled with classical music and historical games. She now lives in Belgium. The Mirror Visitor, her debut series, won the Gallimard Jeunesse-RTL-Télérama First Novel Competition, and every book in the series has proved to be a runaway bestseller. A Winter’s Promise was shortlisted for Waterstones’ Children’s Book Prize in 2019.
