It started off slow. That's okay, it happens sometimes, doesn't always mean you're reading crap.
The middle picked up very nicely, creepy, mysterious, descriptive, some sexual references... interesting stuff.
Then, in the span of a few pages it washes out and never recovers ending a complete and total bore.
Sometimes this happens when things get translated, but I have to say, I was not expecting a coming of age story is this seemingly mystery-thriller. Oh well.
The spark for the story is Annie's Uncle Paul and cousin Gina coming to live with her and her parents. Gina has an attitude, and she brings that attitude to an outing to a forbidden lake. Gina disappears, and Annie and her friends are unable to find any trace of her. They don't want to leave the lake until they find Gina, and end up in the throes of a heavy storm. Annie's parents and Uncle are called,which results in Annie's father, Uncle Paul, and the police appearing ont he scene.
As the story unfolds the layers of relationship are peeled back - between Annie and Steffi, between Annie and her parents, between the four friends, and between Steffi and her sister. What is real, and what is illusion, seems to be in the eyes of the beholder.
One more thing - what does Gina's disappearance have to do with the death of a young mother at this same lake several years before?
A good read, and a very perceptive look at how we all live our lives.
