During the summer of her GCSEs Kite's world falls apart. Her best friend, Dawn, commits suicide after a long struggle with feeling under pressure to achieve. Kite's dad takes her to the Lake District, to give her time and space to grieve. In London Kite is a confident girl, at home in the noisy, bustling city, but in the countryside she feels vulnerable and disorientated. Kite senses Dawn's spirit around her and is consumed by powerful, confusing emotions - anger, guilt, sadness and frustration, all of which are locked inside. It's not until she meets local boy, Garth, that Kite begins to open up - talking to a stranger is easier somehow. Kite deeply misses her friend and would do anything to speak to Dawn just once more, to understand why ...Otherwise how can she ever say goodbye? A potent story about grief, friendship, acceptance and making your heart whole again.

Gentle, easy read -

A gentle read about the devastation of losing, finding and understanding.

We follow Kite as she tries to come to terms with the suicide of her best friend Dawn. Going through the stages of grieving, there is plenty of 'what if?' and 'why?' for Kite to think about.

I was first introduced to Sita Brahmachari with Artichoke Hearts, however I didn't actually finish the book because I wasn't fond of her way of writing as it was quite childish and I couldn't engage well with the story. Having said that in this book Brahmachari guides the reader through the delicate process of losing someone, using delicate wording to convey different meanings effectively. I really enjoyed the meaning of the owls, along with many hidden meanings that are there to help keep Dawn alive in spirit and for Kite to cling on to some kind of reality.

A gentle, delicate and easy read. Covering such a sad subject is hard to understand but Brahmachari has tackled it well. Not the best book in the world, but good.
