A superb novel from a great new talent. The story unfolds told from the different perspectives of each family member and from Alice’s “Ghost”. Unloved by her mother and at a disadvantage in the family from the start Alice’s ‘possession’ leads to more and more turmoil and tragedy, with Alice herself not truly understanding what is happening to her. Each character is fascinating and the descriptions of Hong Kong and the family’s life there are vivid. This is a wonderful book and highly recommended.
