Addictive, thought-provoking, and shocking, this debut novel is a page-turning exploration of human nature and divine intervention--and of the darkest corners of the human soul. An ALA-YALSA Best Book for Young Adults.
From the Publisher:
THE SECRETS OF the past meet the shocks of the present.
Aslaug is an unusual young woman. Her mother has brought her up in near isolation, teaching her about plants and nature and language—but not about life. Especially not how she came to have her own life, and who her father might be.

When Aslaug’s mother dies unexpectedly, everything changes. For Aslaug is a suspect in her mother’s death. And the more her story unravels, the more questions unfold. About the nature of Aslaug’s birth. About what she should do next.

About whether divine miracles have truly happened. And whether, when all other explanations are impossible, they might still happen this very day.

Addictive, thought-provoking, and shocking, Madapple is a page-turning exploration of human nature and divine intervention—and of the darkest corners of the human soul.

From the Hardcover edition.


"With this spellbinding debut, Meldrum marks herself as an author to watch." 5/1/2008

"Theology is on trial in this extraordinary first novel...The author's timing is impeccable: her courtroom revelations advance the narrative while altering readers' perceptions of events, and Aslaug's ruminations force readers to question all they take in. Audiences will need some intellectual mettle for the densely seeded ideas, but they won't be able to stop reading." 5/26/2008

"Meldrum admirably avoids the potentially easy shock value of the parenting scandals by adding enough complexity and ambiguity to keep readers firmly sympathetic to the protagonist, even as she seems to be caught in illusions as much of her own making as impressed upon her." 6/1/2008
