One of my teaching colleagues recommended this book to me and I read it one weekend – I couldn’t put it down. It is a story of a privileged, rich family and the teenage cousins who summer together every year.

The protagonist, Cadence, has suffered some kind of brain injury which means she doesn’t remember what happened to her on the island two years ago. She returns to the island aged seventeen and tries to piece together the events that have had such a huge impact on her and her family.

It is emotional and brilliantly told. The characters felt so real and I loved them all. It is poetic and yet realistic and it took my breath away with its ending.

Favourite quotation: ‘Be a little kinder than you have to’
