beschrijving

In Cygnet, Season Butler gives us the coming-of-age story we haven't heard before, about a young girl resisting the savagery of adulthood as a dying community rejects the promise of youth.

The Kid doesn't know where her parents are. They left with a promise to come back months ago, and now their seventeen-year-old daughter is stranded on Swan Island.

Swan isn't just any island; it's home to an eccentric old age separatist community who have shunned life on the mainland for a haven which is rapidly sinking into the ocean. The Kid's arrival threatens to burst the idyllic bubble that the elderly residents have so carefully constructed, an unwelcome reminder of the life they left behind and one they want rid of.

Cygnet is the story of a young woman battling against the thrashing waves of isolation, and how she learns to find hope, laughter and an original voice in a world that's crumbling around her.
