About the book
Why the old house in the bush so scary? Why are their gaps in the family album? And who is the girl whose voice from the past tugs at Anna, seeming to say something about what is happening now?
Anna confronts these questions when her mother exiles her so she can help her grandmother and uncle pack up the old family home on the West Coast.
But that means Anna must leave her best friend, Chris, who is pregnant. Will she or won't she have the baby? With Anna away, who will Chris talk to? And then Anna meets Jamie. He's different. Or is he? And all the time something seems to link the past with the present.
