Beverley, a bit of a snob, cooks up a plot to visit the island off the coast. She manages to convince the somewhat cautious Elizabeth and her slob of a brother, Gerard, to come along. A surprise companion is Kevin, the cool guy who works in the local shop. This motley crew must find ways to support each other and put up with one another's shortcomings, when they become stranded on the island and encounter a strange inhabitant.

'It would be hard to overpraise this book. The characters are drawn with sensitivity and humour, the story, the stories within a story, are compelling, the location is fresh and vivid, and the novel is quite beautifully written. In the very best sense, it is an old-fashioned tale.' (Peter Hollindale, School Librarian)
'a magical and funny adventure about growing up and knowing yourself.' (RTÉ Guide)
