The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh
This book tells the story of three sisters; Grace, Lia, and Sky. They have been raised by their parents, King and Mother, apart from the rest of society, which their parents have told them is damaged and damaging. Their parents force them to do all sorts of self-destructive rituals, which they say are good for them and they also drug them. The story is unclear about what really is happening in the rest of the world. Their father, King, has died, three men wash up on the shore, and soon afterwards their mother disappears and the three girls are left to deal with the men on their own. Part dystopian novel and part psychological thriller, this novel tells a unique story.
