really liked it
Read from June 20 to 24, 2012

This book clearly rides on the coat-tails of Joan Lindsay's Picnic at Hanging Rock. It would be hard not to notice the similarities - a group of schoolgirls go out with their teacher one day... and not every one will return.

However, it is really only similar in theme - the loss of innocence, the nature of mystery and the mystery of nature. When the resolution comes it is almost a dream - the reader can accept it or reject it.

A dark little fairytale.
