I read this when I was probably around 12 and rereading it now I wasn't sure what to expect, but it still affected me in all the same ways it did then.

The writing is so simple, but what I appreciate about the story is that it's full of mystery and it doesn't feel the need to over explain things. You're never really sure what Jessie is or what her mother is or what really went on at The Sands all those years ago.
