You trust your family. They love you. Don’t they?

When 17-year-old Eva Olsen awakes after a horrific accident that has left her bedbound, her parents are right by her side. Devoted, they watch over her night and day in the attic room of their family home in the forests of Norway.

But the accident has left Eva without her most recent memories, and not everything is as it seems. As secrets from the night of the accident begin to surface, Eva realises – she has to escape her parents’ house and discover the truth. But what if someone doesn’t want her to find it?

MY REVIEW 

Set in Norway, 17 year old Eva wakes and her parents tell her she’d been in a terrible car accident and they are going to look after her while she recovers. Eva’s confused and a little scared as she has no memory of the accident at all…. 

As she slowly recovers, she starts to remember little things and she’s now doubting her parents are telling her the truth…..and why they are keeping her in a locked room?

Isabel Ashdown’s writing really conveys Eva’s confusion and her state of mind while she tries to remember everything…..the tension is slowly building with plenty of twists to keep you turning the pages……just what is happening? And how is this linked to Maxine in London?

Gripping, compelling and with an ending you won’t see coming……brilliant.
