"A magical debut that you will devour" (Guardian)
"Eerie and edgy, dark and intense . . . You'll read it in a single breathless sitting" (The Bookseller)
"Months after reading Moïra Fowley-Doyle’s stunning debut, I am still blown away . . . One of the best books I've read in years. An exquisite story – the kind to win awards, top bestseller lists, and become the obsession of book lovers everywhere" (Publishers Weekly)
"This astonishingly bold debut combines gritty reality with mystical, ghostly presences – and is beautifully written" (Daily Mail)
From the Author
Moïra Fowley-Doyle is half-French, half-Irish and lives in Dublin with her husband, two young daughters and one old cat. Moïra's French half likes red wine and dark books in which everybody dies. Her Irish half likes tea and happy endings. Moïra spent several years at university studying vampires in young adult fiction before concentrating on writing young adult fiction with no vampires in it whatsoever. She wrote her first novel at the age of eight, when she was told that if she wrote a story about spiders she wouldn't be afraid of them any more. Moïra is still afraid of spiders, but has never stopped writing stories.See all Product description

It probably didn’t help that I wasn’t rooting for Cara and Sam to get together – their relationship made me feel deeply uneasy, especially given some of the revelations which occur later in the story, it felt less like an all consuming love than a total disregard for boundaries.I really couldn't care less if they got together I was far more intrigued by the storyline of the mysterious disappearing Elsie. This kind of writing needs a light touch but the author here never gives her characters a chance to breath, so eager is she to get down every single idea that occurs to her. She definitely has talent but this book needed some serious editing.
So now the book.
I think it was ok...i guess, but saying that the ending was questionable.
I think the writing was way too contemporary for me, so I found it very hard (ie: slow) to read, even though i can usually read things in one sit, no problem. I also think the main character Cara was way too needy, and to be honest, her family were a bit crazy as well. So maybe the book needs a bit of a reality check.
Saying that though, it wasn't the worst book in the world, just i wouldn't read it again, and its not really my genre.
