Review

Set in England following the end of World War II, Moody's novel begins when 11-year-old Alice and her brother, Orlando, move with their parents to the small coastal town of Shale. Although the family is poor, they have books, music, seaside adventures, and plenty of friends to make things bearable. But their placid life is shattered when 12-year-old Nicola Stone moves to town. Alice is intrigued by Nicola's sophisticated, knowing precociousness, but Orlando hates her. It's only after weeks of Nicola's thoughtless cruelty and taunting innuendos that Alice begins to hate her, too. On the night of Alice's twelfth birthday party, Nicola disappears, and it's Alice and Orlando who find her battered body the next day. Nicola's killer is never found, but her brutal murder haunts Alice and Orlando into adulthood. Alice, who is more affected by the tragedy than Orlando, decides to move back to Shale, try to discover who killed Nicola, and thus try to exorcise her own demons. This dark, atmospheric novel combines a gripping murder mystery and a psychologically complex coming-of-age tale. -- Booklist, April 1, 2011
