Hannah lives in Zimbabwe during the reign of Robert Mugabe: it’s a country of petrol queues and power cuts, food shortages and government corruption. Yet Hannah is lucky. She can afford to go to school, has never had to skip a meal, and lives in a big house with her mum and their Shona housekeeper. Hannah is wealthy, she is healthy, and she is white. But money can’t always keep you safe.

As the political situation becomes increasingly unstable and tensions within Hannah’s family escalate, her sheltered life is threatened. She is forced to question all that she’s taken for granted, including where she belongs.

An early extract of Little Stones was longlisted for the Richell Prize, received the Express Media prize for best work of fiction, and was published in Award Winning Australian Writing (2015).
Industry Reviews

'Elizabeth Kuiper is a wonderfully perceptive and observant writer. In this story of a Zimbabwean childhood, she subtly captures the complexity of political and family turmoil through the eyes of a young girl. An exciting new voice.' Emily Bitto, author of The Strays

'Little Stones is a compelling debut with a heartfelt, distinctive voice. Hannah is sharp and feisty, wise and funny, and shows a new way of seeing the world and this complex part of history.' Laura Elvery, author of Trick of the Light

'Clearly carved from raw experience, this is a powerful elegy to youth in a place where the only thing worse than staying is leaving.' Aidan Hartley
