All the Bad Apples

by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Publisher: Penguin
Release Date: August 1st 2019

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Mystery

 

The day after the funeral all our mourning clothes hung out on the line like sleeping bats. ‘This will be really embarrassing,’ I kept saying to my family, ‘when she shows up at the door in a week or two.’

When Deena’s wild and mysterious sister Mandy disappears – presumed dead – her family are heartbroken. But Mandy has always been troubled. It’s just another bad thing to happen to Deena’s family. Only Deena refuses to believe it’s true.

And then the letters start arriving. Letters from Mandy, claiming that their family’s blighted history is not just bad luck or bad decisions – but a curse, handed down through the generations. Mandy has gone in search of the curse’s roots, and now Deena must find her. What they find will heal their family’s rotten past – or rip it apart forever.

 

The new YA novel from Waterstones Children’s Book Prize- and Irish Book Award-shortlisted author Moïra Fowley-Doyle

Touching on the themes of abortion, illegitimate pregnancy, the tragedy of the Magdalen Laundries, rape and gay rights, All the Bad Apples is a powerful, haunting and unforgettable novel about silenced women in Ireland.

 

 

Fowley-Doyle says: “All the Bad Apples is a book built of equal parts hope and fury – it’s about feminism and history, family and identity, and what happens when hidden truths are told. I wrote it as Ireland reeled from the findings of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes, as grassroots feminist activists rallied to repeal the 8th amendment, and the rage felt by most of this country infused into a story about a teenage girl retracing her family tree and finding herself in its branches.”

 

 

Advance Praise for All the Bad Apples

“Beautiful and visceral, All the Bad Apples is for readers who’ve had enough of shame and secrets. This essential book unearths what patriarchy wants to keep buried, dragging truth into the light with a fierce belief in the power of telling stories. Moïra Fowley-Doyle has crafted a tale devastating in its universality” – Joy McCullough, author of Blood Water Paint

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

      1. It is not very fast, but also not too slow haha, maybe not a great explanation.. But it really fits the story!

  1. I can’t wait to give this book a try! I’ve seen it up on Netgalley and the cover really captures your attention. I can’t decide which cover I adore more. Hopefully the book is as captivating as the covers when I eventually get around to reading it 🙂
