A feminist Lord of the Flies about three best friends living in quarantine at their island boarding school, and the lengths they go to uncover the truth of their confinement when one disappears. This fresh, new debut is a mind-bending novel unlike anything you've read before.

If you could give Zafira and Nasir one piece of advice, what would it be?
You don't have to go at it alone. There are people who care, and there are people who will understand. You just need to find them.
If you'd met Zafira and Nasir as a teen, would you have been friends?
I started my earliest plotting of We Hunt the Flame as a teen, so both of them were created with little pieces of me. So at first, I think I'd be frightened by the similarities we share, but I'd ultimately befriend them because they are pretty cool!
