A beautifully written and thought-provoking novel on the effects on a family involved in a custody battle. When Louis and his sister are removed unexpectedly from school for a holiday in England by their father they are excited. But before long worry sets in for they’re not allowed to call home to speak to their mother and then when Louis see a photo of himself on a missing person poster he must confront his worst nightmares.
Without Looking Back by Tabitha Suzuma
Twelve-year-old Parisian boy Louis Whittaker has a lot on his plate - his parents are locked in a custody battle over him and his brother and sister, Mum's always working late and Dad's rarely allowed to visit them. Louis finds release in his dance classes and discovers he has a real talent for ballet. But suddenly, Dad whisks them away on a surprise holiday to England, right in the middle of the school term.
Something isn't right - Dad is acting strangely again: could it be he has not fully recovered from his mental breakdown? The rented farmhouse in the Lake District is nice, but why is Dad furnishing it and why won't he let them call home? Then Louis comes across a poster - a missing person's poster. And it has his face on it.
