Publisher's Summary

Three years after leaving her family behind on the idyllic lighthouse island where she grew up, 17-year-old Elizabeth "Squid" McCrae returns, full of anger and accusations and eager to confront her father about a family tragedy. But as a ghostly voice from the past sparks her memories, Squid soon realizes that nothing is exactly as she thought it was, and no one, not even herself, is completely free from blame. The award-winning author of The Wreckers presents a keen exploration of the way family works to make us who we are.

Ok but confusing

There were so many flashbacks that it was confusing. I think if I read it it would make more sense but I was often lost.
