Harriet Reuter Hapgood’s beautiful writing radiates with colour.When seventeen-year-old Minnie Sloe’s mother disappears, so does her ability to see colour.

But losing their mother irrevocably breaks them, and Minnie wonders if she could lose everything: her family, her future, her first love . . . and maybe even her mind.
