The Girl Who Outgrew the World
A May 1, 2022 release!
by Zoje Stage
When precocious Lilly, an eleven-year-old, undergoes an inexplicable and startling growth spurt, her father and doctors decide to take drastic action to curb what they see as a dangerous development. Faced with condescending treatment and cruelty, Lilly escapes and embarks on a journey to discover her true self. Zoje Stage's new novella is a parable for how patriarchy treats the female body (and, by extension, the female mind and soul) and the objectification of girls.
Zoje Stage is the USA Today and internationally bestselling author of Baby Teeth, Wonderland, and Getaway. A former filmmaker with a penchant for the dark and suspenseful, she lives in Pittsburgh.
