(From the publisher):
Eleven-year-old Mole and twelve-year-old Tilly were babies when their parents drowned one stormy night on the Kittiwake River. Their aunt's reluctance to discuss the tragedy in anything more than the most cryptic, fragmented terms has served only to feed the sisters' curiosity, and together they have constructed an elaborate mythology about that night. But in one long, hot summer, their story -- and thus their whole world -- will be called into question.
