The second in her Young Adult series which are set in her native America and bring touches of the supernatural into the suspense story. I mention all this for she is better known for her very English detective novels featuring Inspector Lynley. Here we have a fishing village that protects a black seal who visits annually. They have named her Nera and hold a festival in her honour once a year. Well into the story of an intriguing community we are introduced to Cilla, a wretched injured girl and now the tale changes gear. Centring on a bunch of 15- and 16-year olds discovering their sexuality, this is a wonderful read for teenagers and adults alike.

If you like Elizabeth George you might also like to read books by Ian Rankin, Morag Joss and Jane Adams.
