This is a story of teenage turmoil. Something has happened in the Cederberg – something that all were involved in and all are ashamed of. The story jumps around impulsively as the teens ignore advice, defy parents, send SMSs that say only half of what was intended, risk entanglements. Above all they hope – stupidly, wildly, even dangerously. Most of the book is set around such reassuring places as Rondebosch Common, though we know that somewhere in the mountains something awaits and attracts. Poetically and horribly, we follow the effects of drug over-dosing. It’s a hammer-headed, heart-buster of a novel.
