Reading this was a little like digging out of a hole. Taylor is a boarder in a school in NSW Australia. Throughout the book, I wondered what role the school actually had in her life, but maybe because it takes place during a break, classes don't exist and she never thinks of them. She was abandoned by her mother at age 11 and seems to have stayed there, in terms of her ignorance about what happened to her family. Her life revolves around being head of her house and planning for war games with the cadets camped out nearby for a few weeks, and the townies. But then it turns out, she's 17, nobody's told her anything in all these years and when the right boy comes along, she suddenly becomes a sexual being. It seems like her search for answers would really have happened over the course of years, rather than the few weeks of the story. The story was interesting, but beyond digging out of the hole, I felt like it was full of holes.
