The Lovereading4Kids comment

Scarred, literally, by her past, Marina has withdrawn into silence. Then, at her new boarding school, she is set the task of writing a diary by her English teacher, and finds a way of expressing her thoughts and feelings and of exploring the traumatic events that have caused her distress. Through Marina's diary we gain an insight into life on her dormitory, and her difficult relationship with her father, who injured her in an angry moment. Eventually, Marina makes tentative friendships and, in a moving denouement, is reconciled with her father.

Reviews

Beautifully written... The heroine's perceptiveness, sense of humour and fair-mindedness temper the tragedy and offer a splendid read. The Times Educational Supplement
