9780141038315: What I Was

'I am a century old, an impossible age, and my brain has no anchor in the present. Instead it drifts, nearly always to the same shore: the year I discovered love . . .'

In the early sixties on an East Anglian beach a fragile wooden hut is harried daily by the sea. It is ignored by the boys from the nearby boarding school who stumble past on their birch-enforced runs. Until the day one sixteen-year-old boy stops and comes face to face with the hut's owner: enigmatic, beguiling, beautiful Finn. The hut and the beach but most of all Finn provide a haven away from the petty rules and bullies. But they also hold a mysterious, fragile secret. A secret that will be tested by friendship, growing adolescent love and the terrifying fury of the sea . . .

Mordantly funny and searingly well written ( The Times )

An engrossing, haunting story of first love, friendship and betrayal ( Herald )

Thrilling ( Observer )

A coming-of-age novel that sucks the reader into its universe ( Time Out )

Review:

A plot that is at once thrilling and sensitively told
