They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.
Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff.
A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.
Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason.
Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photograph of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.
‘Z’ is all it read.
Z for Zac.
I managed to get stuck into this book right from the off, and found it an interesting and easy read.
The story is based around 'Two Sisters' who have lost their parents in an accident.
Megan and Chloe visit their old holiday home in the seaside town of Whitecliff.
They have returned here as they hold memories of the place, it's where their brother Zac went missing ten years ago. It's time to get their parents things in order, but there is also another reason Megan needed to come back. She has received a postcard from Whitecliff signed 'Z'.
Is this from her brother, or someone who knew him. The sisters are not mad to feel welcome by everyone in the town. Some people it seems don't want them there. Things start happening, and slowly the girls are piecing things together.
What really went on when Zac went missing?
This really was an interesting story line, and keeps you gripped throughout the book. It leaves you wanting more each time you put it down, and you know you'll be picking it back up the first opportunity.
