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.
