Here, and Only Here cover

Welcome to the School of Here, an unsettling and peculiar place that is nonetheless familiar to us all. A place full of codes and unspoken rules that are passed down from year to year.

At Here, society is highly stratified: the pairs, friend groups, and outcasts are all ruled by a godlike prince. This year—as all other years—things are not at all as they seem. A self-effacing first-year student vanishes into thin air. A persecuted outsider delivers himself into permanent exile. A tyrannical upperclassman meets his match. A newly-minted prophetess tests her powers. And, behind the scenes, a cabal of students conducts a top-secret investigation into the unexplained phenomenon at the heart of it all.

With Here, and Only Here, Christelle Dabos – author of the international sensation The Mirror Visitor Quartet – gives readers an intriguing and penetrating novel that explores the difficulties of fitting in, and the private, individual choices that make up the sometimes abhorrent, always unpredictable collective.
