A moving, haunting and all too real novel that takes you beyond the headlines and explores a family's worst nightmare with compassion and insight.
Charlie Johnson is 13 and in her first year of high school. She loves her family, netball and Liam, the cute guy who sits next to her in Science - but most of all she loves horses and horse riding.
Charlie's parents have leased her a horse, Tic Tac, from the local pony club, but one day they go out for a ride in the national park and only Tic Tac returns....
Four months later, long after the police and the SES have called off the search, Charlie is found wandering injured and filthy, miles from where she was last seen. Her family rejoice in her return, but can anyone truly recover from what Charlie's been through? When a life has been shattered, how do you put the pieces back together?

Beautifully written and narrated story.
I cannot remember downloading this book as it would not normally be my choice of story. However, from the moment I started to listen to it, I was gripped. The story is both beautifully written and narrated. It deals with issues of abduction, isolation and recovery in a sympathetic way. I could almost visualise the faces of the characters, the places they visited and the traumatic events that unfold. A very gifted writer.
