The Lip by Charlie Carroll
Away from the hotels and holiday homes there is an unseen side to Cornwall where the shifting uncertainty of the future breeds resentment and mistrust.
Jenny’s melody is hidden. She lives alone in a caravan at Bones Break: a small cliff top on the north coast of Cornwall. She spends her time wandering around her territory, spying on tourists and vagrants and memorizing. She sees everything and remains invisible.
However, when a stranger enters her life, she is forced to face not only him, but also the terrible tragedies of her past.
Lip is a novel about childhood, isolation and mental health told in the unique and unforgettable voice of Melody Jenny.
“All this is breaking bones. It’s all mine.
I know every inch of him; I know it as close as the seagulls. I stand dead center, my feet balancing on the edge of the lip. Below is a thunderous tattoo of waves on a rock. The wind catches the tips of my hair, raising it above my ribs: less force than is necessary to knock me off my feet; enough to make me straighten up, take a step to the left, and then back again. Here on the lip, it’s vital to know where my feet are.’
Close your eyes Beverly Harvey
How did I forget the worst thing that ever happened to me? And how do I try to put it right?

Since then, I have understood: it is the memory of the attack. Many years ago, something terrible happened to me – a night that changed my life without even knowing it. My family and friends don’t believe me – they say I’m making it up, but I know I’m right. I don’t know who was responsible. And I won’t stop until I know.
Where the truth leads me. No matter what betrayals are revealed. Regardless of the risk.
