The Shuttered Room by Christine Purkis

Life is sweet for seventeen-year-old Alison. A long, hot summer nannying in the South of France is bound to brush-up her French, top-up her tan and - who knows? - maybe even pep-up her love life too!

And then she discovers the secret diary, and Alison finds herself swept away with its emotional, passionate and intriguing revelations...
