Summary
When Matthew Homes is 9, his 11-year-old brother Simon, who has Downs Syndrome, dies while on a coastal vacation with their family. Ten years later, Matthew, now diagnosed with Schizophrenia, attempts to manage his disease and come to terms with the loss of his brother and the part he may have played in his death.
Critique
Told in a non-linear style by the often unreliable and medicated protagonist Matthew, this is a tough, emotional and important novel about mental illness. Compelling reading with a mystery undercurrent that will have readers devouring the book in a single setting. An unforgettable, heartbreaking and rewarding read.
