Woven through the narrative, quietly and almost unseen, is the nature of the relationship between Kate and her older sister, Frankie, which reaches an eventful and startling climax. Kate is a reticent narrator, wanting to protect her sister and yet admitting that she has feelings for others with results in, I think, a sense of guilt because she wasn't wholly focused on Frankie when Frankie wanted her full attention.
It's a quiet book, and the action is subdued and lingering, rather than being obvious and loudly proclaiming itself. Not for everyone, I would say, but definitely for me.
