Richard has hung out at the abandoned house in the woods during his summer vacation for as long as he can remember. But this year, he discovers that a family has moved in. The father, J. A. Dalton, is an internationally renowned artist who insists on painting Richard’s portrait, while Dalton’s wife draws the boy into her circle as though he were one of the family’s bohemian adult friends.

But it is their beautiful daughter, Clio, with whom Richard becomes obsessed. Soon he finds ways to spend days–and nights–with Clio, all the while struggling to understand and fit in with her eccentric clan. How can he know that some mysteries are best left unsolved–and that the passions of a single summer will change his life forever?

    " The art,the first leaps of love and the family portraits described all together in a strange but as well, charming way. The author is using great techniques to put us into the house where the main story takes place, while we just keep turning the pages. "

    " It could've been a little better in terms of plot. The descriptions of the paintings were intriguing, though. "

    " Though I like the style that Celia Rees writes in, I did not like this novel much. The main character's point of view was fun to read from, but the plot seemed too "all over the place" for me to fully understand what was going on. I think the subject matter of the plot was not to my liking either. "
