The Forgotten Island
Eleven year old Helen spends the summer holidaying on an Italian island with her parents and thirteen year old sister Lea. The story examines the relationship between the sisters and Lea's disappearance. I thought the story and atmosphere were sound but found the writing a bit self conciously literary in places and a bit repetitive sometimes. Overall a pleasant little read though.
It does leave you wondering but though it is a short novel i wouldn't reccomend it to younger people as it is sad and if you aren't use to stories that have details about how horrible life can be.
I may be exaggerating.
