Three years after leaving her family behind on the idyllic lighthouse island where she grew up, 17-year-old Elizabeth Squid McCrae returns, full of anger and accusations and eager to confront her father about a family tragedy. But as a ghostly voice from the past sparks her memories, Squid soon realizes that nothing is exactly as she thought it was, and no one, not even herself, is completely free from blame. The award-winning author of The Wreckers presents a keen exploration of the way family works to make us who we are. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is so heartbreakingly sad. The main character squid gets on my nerves though. "

    " The story was okay, but the writing was a little bit cheesy. "

    " I don't know, this might be a good book. But I just wasn't feeling it, and didn't want to waste my time anymore when I have a stack of books I'm excited to read. So I gave myself permission to not finish! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsey Christensen | 4/10/2013

    " This is a melancholy book about a family living isolated on an island maintaining the lighthouse. I thought the mystery of the son's demise was interesting. There's a little bit of matter-of-fact ual talk. "

    " Incest and the search for truth :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karin | 4/12/2012

    " Young teen book. Bought it for my daughter ages ago and decided to read it. Pretty disappointing considering the premise of the book. Kept thinking it would get better but alas, no. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Madeline | 3/2/2012

    " This book was possibly one of the worst books I have ever read. It was creepy and really confusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shar Wallis | 2/8/2012

    " I chose this book because of the setting; a remote island off the coast of BC. The synopsis made it look good, and I tried to like it. However I found it to be a slow, strange little YA book. "

    " A novel that both my husband and I like, which is a somewhat rare occurrence. Excellent writing--weird but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/20/2010

    " Relfective, artful, and realistic. It portrays just what coming home can be like--the impossibility, the saddness, and the never-ending, desperate hope that things will be different. "
