I adored this. The writing was very powerful, it brought the story to life - I felt I could actually see, hear & smell the surroundings. The characters were strong, the story unwound at a great pace & it captured that strange place between childhood & teenage years really well. I figured out what the mother was up to fairly early on, but that didn't detract from the story.

Having said all that, I wasn't too keen on the seemed a little rushed. But its definitely a keeper for the bookshelf.
