Full Product Description
Molly Fisk Needs the Courage to Face Her Fears.
What She Finds Instead is a Most Unexpected Friendship.
Seventeen-year-old Molly Fisk does not go outside. For so long she has run away from a moment long in the past, but she's not running anymore, she's hiding. Ruled by anxiety, she can only stare out the window of the tiny tourist-town museum she and her mother call home, longing to go outside--to maybe take a walk with the cute boy who works in the pizza place across the street.
Then the chance arrival of a woman Molly knew years ago changes everything.
Back then, Claire Rodriguez was an empty shell. Only in the unique friendship she struck up with a little girl--a silent girl who'd only talk to Claire--did she see the possibility of healing. But one day the girl and her mother vanished, their house left abandoned.
What happened that drove them away? And how can Claire now offer Molly the same chance at finding life anew?

The Air We BreatheMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
A strange story that stays in your mind for a long time. It has taken me several weeks since reading this book to get round to writing these notes but a quick look at the cover and I was back into the midst of it.
A little girl witnesses a bank robbery and her father being shot. She is kidnapped by the robbers who fear she could indentify them. She does escape but the damage is done and she is locked in fear, not speaking to anyone.
The story develops from there. Other characters are drawn in, the scene changes as mother and daughter escape from the robber who has found them and they flee to family and then flee again.
It is unsettling and compulsive reading and it is many years later that the story unfolds in the odd surroundings of a tiny tourist town museum that mother and daughter look after. An original character re-appears and together with the boy accross the road who persists with his friendship with the girl, unlocks mother and daughter from their self imposed 'imprisonment'.
Having remembered all this, I shall now read it through again!
