The book explores the reality behind the facade in a seductive story of power, privilege and personal rebellion. Emily Perkins previously won the Montana Medal for Fiction or Poetry in 2009 for Novel About My Wife.

The 16 finalists were selected from a longlist of 44 books by panels of specialist judges across four categories: fiction, poetry, illustrated non-fiction, and general non-fiction.
