All of them are drawn to her for different reasons, and she persuades them to abandon the cliched schoolies experience in favour of camping with her on a remote, uninhabited island. On that island, each of them will find answers to their questions. But what does Sierra want from them? An empathetic and suspenseful coming-of-age story from the author of All That Impossible Space.

MACLEAN'S BOOKS REVIEW:

A beautiful depiction of the gap between high school and the 'real world'. Told from the perspectives of four teenagers each with their own stuff to work out and punctuated with a deliciously creepy atmosphere; just when you think you know what's going on you're looking deeper and questioning yourself. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
