Publisher's Summary

Life had lost its sweetness. Socrates felt as if he had eaten an accursed apple and was, like Adam, suddenly prone to emotions he had never before experienced - fear, loneliness and shame. For Socrates, growing up in a small, Cypriot village isn't idyllic so much as frustrating. Summer is on the horizon and yet his parents, his teachers and his interfering neighbours seem intent on preventing Socrates and his friends from having any fun. But times are changing and the jasmine-scented breezes mingle with the threat of danger. Behind the facade of respectable island life lurks a dark and menacing presence.


What the Critics Say

Just like a boy

This was a good read. The characters were engaging and the story lines were interesting. I did not enjoy one particular scene; however, this is just because it was a bit disturbing. In all, it was well worth the credit. Makes me want to visit Cypress.
