On the remote French Ile de Batz, Casey Jensen is desperately trying to regain some sort of control over her life. Throughout the story we slowly discover why Casey is on the island and what it is that has triggered her lock down. A highschool French teacher, Casey is surprised when one of her students reaches out to her, opens up to her and shares with her their deepest feelings. Ben spent the last five years in Tajikistan with his family and the ripple affects are tearing the young man apart. ...more

This book really highlighted some of the struggles missionary kids (MKs) wrestle with. The story unravels at a good pace, flip flopping between what happened in the past and Casey's move to France. The author did a good job diving into some of the cultural differences between France and the US, too.

I likes this book a lot because it gave me a glimpse into the lives of missionary kids living in boarding schools. It's dark but well written.
