Ami lives on Culion, where some of the inhabitants - including her mother - have leprosy. She loves her home - but then islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Desperate to return, Ami finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it's too late?

From the author of the bestselling THE GIRL OF INK & STARS comes a moving, enthralling and heartbreaking tale of finding your way home - shortlisted for the Costa Book Award and the Blue Peter Book Award.'The Island at the End of Everything is such a fiercely kind and generous book, and so finely-wrought and so full of light ... brilliant.' KATHERINE RUNDELL '... a beautiful, haunting tale of leprosy, lepidoptery and loyalty.' FRANCES HARDINGE Amihan lives on Culion Island, where some of the inhabitants - including her mother - have leprosy. Ami loves her home - with its blue seas and lush forests, Culion is all she has ever known. But the arrival of malicious government official Mr Zamora changes her world forever: islanders untouched by sickness are forced to leave. Banished across the sea, she's desperate to return, and finds a strange and fragile hope in a colony of butterflies. Can they lead her home before it's too late?
