My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was an awesome book. Unexpected, a little bit creepy, but impossible to put down. The photographs inspired a fantastic story that stays with me weeks later. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Definitely one of the best books I have read in recent memory.

After the strange death of Jacob’s grandfather, Jacob visits a small British island where his grandfather sought refuge as a child after his parents were killed in the Holocaust. Here Jacob searches for clues to his grandfather’s past that he hopes will help him recover from his grief.

This novel offers the unexpected constantly; it is peculiar, and mysterious, slightly creepy and yet heart-warming. You should probably read it.
