A challenging read from Robson, as we follow the fortunes of a young girl hitch-hiking, in a desperately ill condition. Through a couple of layers of flashback we find out what has happened to her (brutal in the extreme), and how her condition (ie alive) is due to alien intervention on a cellular level.
There’s no happy ending, as after three resurrections Jessica realises that there is indeed a face worth than death(s).

Canadian writer, Kelly Robson, is a talent to keep an eye on.
