We don't want to tell you what happens in this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know enough to buy it so we will just say this: It is extremely tunny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn't. And it's what happens afterwards that is most important.
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.
