'WOW! If this isn't a book to brag about I don't know what is... I started The Favourite late last night. Never did I anticipate I would be closing the book at 3am left in complete shock... This book was insane! It was twisted, it was heart-breaking but it was so darn good! A must-read... I strongly encourage you to pre-order this book!' Reader Review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Her teacher's pet, or his worst nightmare?

Jessica Mooney seems like any other student at her university. She's talented, driven, and looks set to be this year's 'favourite' in charismatic Professor Crane's Law and Literature class. But unlike the other students competing for his good opinion, Jessica isn't what she seems. She's carrying a dark secret.

Her sister is dead. Crane's to blame. And she's the only one who can bring him to justice.

Will Jessica be able to get the answers and justice she seeks, or will her search for revenge destroy her first?

Read what everyone is saying about The Favourite:

"'Juicy and dark... a standout dark academia thriller, with shades of Donna Tartt's modern classic The Secret History and Emerald Fennell's revenge fantasy film Promising Young Woman... Jessica is a firecracker of a protagonist... Thanks to Hennigan's strong voice and full embrace of the bumpy, twisty nature of retribution and revenge, The Favourite positively sings." BookPage

"My favourite read of the YEAR. YES THE WHOLE YEAR. I love this book so much. Every character in this book is perfect... But for real I loved every minute of this book... This is the first book in a while that I was GLUED TO. I never wanted it to end. Fast-paced, there's never a dull moment. READ THIS BOOK if you like some feminist payback in the form of a devious plan. I hope you'll like this book as much as I have." Reader Review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Such an evocative academic atmosphere... very original... Beautifully done... brilliant foreshadowing... A truly propulsive read that I ended up gobbling up in one sitting" Heather Darwent, author of instant Sunday Times bestseller, The Things We Do to our Friends

"The Secret History X Revenge. Love itttt." Reader Review, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
