The Killing Jar, Paperback


Five-year-old Kerrie-Ann Hill has an unusual neighbour.

Mrs Ivanovich collects butterflies and she shows Kerrie-Ann how to catch them, take care of them, and evenhow to kill them using a jar and some funny-smelling liquid.

Kerrie-Ann loves looking at these beautiful, delicate creatures, and imagines them flying free...This is Kerrie-Ann's story.

She doesn't know who her father is, and her mother is a junkie.

By the age of ten, she's selling drugs at school. By twelve, she's been beaten up by a customer, hidden stolen guns, done time in a girls' home, and already has a taste for whizz. And then there's Mark - her only true friend and the one person she can trust.

Their friendship turns into a powerful love and together they are invincible.

But in their world it's easy to lose control. On the drug-riddled estate with an atmosphere as lethal as a killing jar, it seems that Kerrie-Ann doesn't stand a chance.

Unless she can make use of what Mrs Ivanovich taught her all those years ago.
