Freya has come to visit her grandparents who live on a remote island. Last year she visited them with her brother – but last year her brother died alone in a boating accident. Whilst back on the island, Freya finds a way, with the calming presence of her grandparents and the gentle care and attention of the people around her, to adjust to the fact that her brother has gone, and that life – and love – are still vibrantly in the air.
A perfect coming of age for any young girl just tipping into teenhood.
This book is about a girl called Freya, it is beautifully written by her point of view and how she reacts going back to the Island where her brother drowned. I think she dealt well with the situation and her character comes across strong. The book mainly centres on how she is feeling. Julia writes in a way where you can almost feel like your there, there is a lot of emotion going on in this book, but Julia seems to write with light heartedness.
