AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In my defence I can only put forward this disclaimer: I don't consider myself to be a promiscuous person. Promiscuity implies a degree of carelessness whereas I was very particular about who I slept with.

'When it comes to love, Gaelle is careful. But when it comes to friendship, her heart betrays her in unexpected ways.

'Fleeing her life with little more than her clothes, her camera and her cosmetics, Gaelle finds herself washed up in the seaside town of Siesta Park. There she meets thirteen-year-old Selena whose friendship, unlooked for and unwanted, helps Gaelle face the legacy of a childhood overshadowed by a charismatic but unreliable mother.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Dedication: To Russell, for always believing.
  • Epigraph:

    With you I could have
    more than one skin,
    a blank interior, a repertoire
    of untold stories,
    a fresh beginning.

    - Margaret Atwood
