How does a sixteen-year-old boy deal with his confusing memories of a mother who deserted him and a reclusive father who has turned the family home into a kind of museum? While sixteen-year-old Dec seems to have so much going for him, when he decides to hitch a ride home from school one day, he sets in motion an unsettling chain of events: a robbery, a death and the unearthing of sweet and dark memories.

I am an adult reader who really enjoys Tim Wynne-Jones writing style. Interesting story.

As a parent, this work was an interesting illustration of how the desire to "shelter" our children by not telling the truth can make our relationships worse. Well written. Recommended for young teens.
