Publisher's Summary

Sam is 17, starving herself and longing for oblivion. Her sister, Jena, is mentally scarred and desperate to remember. Between them, they share secrets too terrible to recall.
Eighteen months earlier, Sam was still full of hope: hope that she could piece together Jena's fragmented memory after the vicious attack that changed their family forever. But digging into the past unearthed long-hidden lies and betrayals, and left Sam feeling helpless and alone in a world designed to deceive her.
Now, in a last bid to save her from self-imposed shutdown, Sam's therapist is helping her confront her memories. But the road to recovery is a dangerous one. Because Sam has not only been lying to her doctors: she's been hiding dark secrets from herself.

Utterly Predictable

While this offers an interesting insight into the life and motivation of an anorexic, the story itself was written by numbers. I had worked out who did it and why by about two hours into the reading.

There was no audible delineation between what was happening 'now', what Sam was 'merely' thinking about in the the past and what she was 'chatting' to Clive about. Maybe, in the book, these are shown by different fonts or type styles but, at times, it became a little confusing. Then there was the increasingly irritating way of saying dates - and there are a lot of dates - for example, "twenty-fifth January", "fifteenth April" instead of "the twenty-fifth of January" or "the fifteenth of April". This, coupled with the excruciating accents, which were so hit and miss - considerably more miss than hit, made it a painful listen at times.

It was OK and passed a few days' journeys to and from work, but I don't think I'll be rushing to buy anything else from either the author or the narrator.
