This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes.

Enter the Goddens – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo.

Suddenly there’s a serpent in this paradise – and the consequences will be devastating. From bestselling, award-winning author Meg Rosoff comes a lyrical and quintessential coming-of-age tale – a summer book that’s as heady, timeless and irresistible as Bonjour Tristesse and I Capture the Castle but as sharp and fresh as Normal People.

  1. uriel walker

    I had not realised upon starting this small gem of a book that it was intended for a YA audience, but it was so evocative of expanding teenage awareness of desire and relationships that it almost dragged me back to my own past.

    It is a slim, and not unpredictable tale, but the craft and care lie in its nuance and consistent observations of what we both believe in and ignore, in order to give into what we really want.
    And how we deserve it too, regardless.
