“A ghost story that will spook even the most hardened grown-ups.” —Entertainment Weekly
After their world-famous actor mother disappeared under mysterious circumstances, Manon and Thaïs left their remote Mediterranean island home—sent away by their pharma-tech tycoon father. Opposites in every way, the sisters drifted apart in their grief. Yet their mother's unfinished story still haunts them both, and they can't put to rest the possibility that she is still alive.
Lured home a decade later, Manon and Thaïs discover their mother’s legendary last work, long thought lost: White Fox, a screenplay filled with enigmatic metaphors. The clues in this dark fairytale draw them deep into the island's surreal society, into the twisted secrets hidden by their glittering family, to reveal the truth about their mother—and themselves.

Manon "Noni" and her younger sister Tha s "Tai" Foix Hammick, daughters of a pharmaceutical magnate and an actor, have lived with their aunt Marion in New York City since their mother's disappearance a decade earlier. The girls have drifted apart: Tai, a social media influencer, drops out of high school to pursue a modeling career, while studious writer Noni prefers to remain unseen. When Tai is invited to a retrospective of their mother's career, the sisters return to the family home, St k wood, on the island country of Viloxin. Robotic caregiver Mina, created to help their now deceased father, gives the pair a letter from him, which reveals his belief that their mother is alive and that she left clues about her whereabouts in a script called White Fox. Faring (The Tenth Girl) presents a gripping treasure hunt relayed through three perspectives: Noni, Tai, and enigmatic Boy. Interspersed throughout are pages from White Fox, which illuminate its author's state of mind while simultaneously revealing family secrets. Though some aspects feel farfetched, Faring conjures an atmospheric, almost fairytale-like setting as the backdrop for two girls seeking long-delayed closure. Ages 14 up.
