This is a book I kept while cleaning out my mother’s house. A few pages in, I realized that I had seen the movie that was made of it. This is by the same author as Remains of the Day, but is very different. The three main characters are two girls and a boy who go to a special school. I can’t say any more about that without giving away a pretty major point. While the relationships among these three and their classmates are interesting, the story never seems to go anywhere. I enjoyed the book overall, but I expect that many people would be disappointed at the lack of resolution.
