CreaturesOn the eve of Evangeline’s wedding, on the shore of Winter Island, a dead whale is trapped in the harbor, the groom may be lost at sea, and Evie’s mostly absent mother has shown up out of the blue. From there, in this mesmerizing, provocative debut, the narrative flows back and forth through time as Evie reckons with her complicated upbringing in this lush, wild land off the coast of Southern California. 
 
“Some of the most heartbreaking moments in this novel are the most simply told, and there are scenes of beauty and magic and dry humor amid the chaos . . . A quietly captivating debut.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review
 
“Inventive and surprising . . . A punch to the heart. It's one of the best novels I've read this year.” —Kristen Arnett, bestselling author of Mostly Dead Things
 
“Wiry, rhythmic, and wrenchingly beautiful, Creatures plumbs the sea-struck heart of a family fractured by longing and grief.” —Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks
