About the Book:  

In a tiny flat in West London, sixteen-year-old Marina lives with her emotionally delicate mother, Laura, and three ancient Hungarian relatives.  Imprisoned by her family’s crushing expectations, their strange traditions and stranger foods, she knows she must escape.  But the place she runs to makes her feel even more of an outsider. 

At Combe Abbey, a traditional English public school, she realizes she has made a terrible mistake.  She is the awkward half-foreign girl who doesn’t know how to fit in, flirt, or even be.  In the meantime, her mother Laura has her own painful secrets to deal with, especially the return of the last man she’d ever expect back in her life.  She isn’t noticing that, at Combe Abbey, things are starting to go terribly wrong.
