I really enjoyed this. It starts from a situation we all recognise – not necessarily that holiday, but the blurred boundaries of friendship and sex/romance that happen in young friendship groups. It plays out through entirely believable character development. It’s nicely paced, and discomforting because it’s so believable. The past is reviewed, different angles are revealed, the story changes in the way that life changes with new revelations. Things fall into place.
I’ve read a few books recently that capture that slight insanity of youth, and it’s fun to be reminded of all that – and I have mixed feelings about whether I’d want to go through it again. This is particularly nicely written.
I will definitely pick up her next book.
