Whiplash

An unputdownable, gripping debut novel, a ‘Cinderella’ story about a Muizenberg (Cape Town) prostitute, Tess, who while being addicted to painkillers and selling her body on the street finds redemption in unexpected places. Her quirky humour, honesty and love of beauty save her when she faces tough choices. The book has heart and a feel-good factor in spite of its gritty and sometimes traumatic subject matter.
