This is the best book I have read so far this year. It's a brilliant adventure story, full of amazing and terrifying moments that will stay with me for a while.
After a freak storm, Bill is left alone and adrift somewhere near the Canary Islands. He discovers a girl, nearly dead, floating in the storm wreckage and decides to save her. The girl is Aya - and she has a mysterious past....
It's written in short chapters in a sparse no-nonesense style. It's one of those books where, although you can guess at the ending you really don't know what is going to happen next, and it's full of surprises.
I won't spoil the ending - other than to say it's brilliant!
If you are a fan of adventure or survival stories, this will not disappoint! If you liked Martel: The Life of Pi, or Rundell: The Explorer, you will love this!
