My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is full of complex twists and turns and just when I thought I’d got a part sussed, it changed again. Written around an English family in the 1980’s, where a lot of “White Goods” pass through their house, from a place called Dontask (Don’t ask). The story is mostly told from the point of view of 12 year old Scott. A complex boy with his own set of fears he finds that secrets are kept from him and there is a mysterious person called Jackie whom no one will talk about. For the reader there is also a mysterious character called Tina who plays a role in the mounting number of fatalities as the story reaches its end. The book shows a great insight into how complicated some people’s lives are, and how families rally around to support each other. White goods remain a powerful part to the story right up to the end, I don’t think I’ll ever look at a chest freezer the same again. My congratulations to Guy for writing a book with so many layers.
