Award-winning Meg Rosoff brilliantly unravels a story of secrets and surprises as seen through the eyes of twelve year old Mila. An only child, Mila is a sharp observer of the world around her; she picks up the small details that people think they are keeping hidden and which adults easily miss. Accompanying her father on a long trip to a remote place to find his best-friend who has gone missing, Mila sensitively detects buried sorrows and tensions which may be useful as explanations. What Mila learns is important and leads to the uncovering of truths that have been kept from her. Meg Rosoff captures perfectly the way Mila, like other sensitive teenagers, sees behind what adults tell her and creates her own understanding of their actions. ~ Julia Eccleshare
