    1. The cover drew me in, and then Sarah Stovell s compelling debut novel took hold of me.It is a tale told in three narrative voices.When she was a small child Leila lost her mother in a car accident She just had her father But then her father remarried His new wife had a baby of her own A baby who would be found dead in his cradle one morning.Leila was sent away to boarding school Her father visited but years passed without Leila ever going home.She is brilliantly clever and wonderfully accomplish [...]

    2. A bookstore next to my place was closing down and putting all its hidden shelves stock out on display to sell I found in the middle of other forgotten books this very cool artistic cover I fell in love with it immediately after reading a few key words on the back cover intense relationship , painful past , dreadful accident and disturbing, manipulative influence yes, yes, it s all me, Miss Glass half full and bought it without any other form of questioning.The story revolves around Olivia, who i [...]

    3. It has girls who like girls, it s British, and mostly set in a boarding school Sounds like everything I would love in a book And I did really like it, and couldn t put it down once I d started But the ending just killed me I don t think I ve been this emotionally overwrought since I saw A Streetcar Named Desire It s the sort of book that, once you re finished, you straight away get out your phone to text someone that you love them.Also, I hated Katherine and that never changed, which probably ma [...]

    4. THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS After reading this on the back of the book below, I was beginning to realise that time didn t move forwards here It just spun round and round, circling an old date, endlessly So says seventeen year old Olivia who spends the summer at the home of her boarding school friend, the brilliant, distant, lonely Leila Their intense relationship circles Leila s painful past a dreadful accident when she was five, and then the sudden death of her infant brother [...]

    5. The synopsis and the beautiful cover of this book really do make you want to read it and I wasnt disappointed.From the first page, the story really grabs your attention Olivia and Leilas intense relationship is narrated chapter by chapter from their separate perspectives in which we hear their feelings and their fears I think this way of telling the story makes the characters believeble and gives them depth Their relationship is incredibly intense, and the author does include some fairly expli [...]

    6. Let us make no mistake This book is dark.DARK.The kind of darkness in which every flicker or glimmer of light that might potentially survive is snuffed out There is no happy ending.It s darkness lingered with me for days after I finished it, and filled my head I don t like unhappy endings I don t believe in the kind of tragedy that breeds tragedy, I don t believe that forgiveness isn t possible I think that if anything could bring reconciliation and relief from the bitter spiral of hurt and trag [...]

    7. Intriguing read, dark and makes you lose faith in humanity I think Rosie is the foundation for all the trauma and hope she lives a long life, suffering throughout and then die falling down the stair in her old bones because she be tripping

    8. Wow, this book has got me thinking a lot The end was kinda rushed but the story overall was quite interesting I would recommend it, it s really mind changing in a way.

    9. It s been a while since I devoured a book in one gulp, but I just had to do it Not always comfortable reading, but compelling.

    10. Enjoyed this book it s a bit different from the usual The cover on this is lovely really catches the eye.Worth a read.
