This is a book about phobias and obsessions, isolation and dark
corners. It's about families, friendships, and carefully preserved
secrets. But above everything else it's about love. Finding love -
in any of its forms - and nurturing it. Miss Hayes has a new
theory. She thinks my condition's caused by some traumatic incident
from my past I keep deep-rooted in my mind. As soon as I come clean
I'll flood out all these tears and it'll all be ok and I won't be
scared of Them anymore. The truth is I can't think of any single
traumatic childhood incident to tell her. I mean, there are plenty
of bad memories - Herb's death, or the time I bit the hole in my
tongue, or Finners Island, out on the boat with Sarah - but none of
these are what caused the phobia. I've always had it. It's Them.
I'm just scared of Them. It's that simple.

Review This Product
Wed, 4 May 2016 | Review by: Sue @ Crushingcinders
A steadfast, but unreliable narrator leads the reader through this heart-wrenching story.
Peppered with love, hope, secrets and lies this book latched onto me and drew me towards the ultimate conclusion where I was left dazed. A brilliant portrayal of the dissolution of family life.
