Publisher's Summary

"She was beside me all the time, holding my hand as we both sank inside the mellow sweetness of nicotine oblivion."

With one year remaining of sixth-form a tragedy strikes the heart of a close-knit group of teenagers. As political forces threaten to claim and overrun their town, two girls fall hopelessly in love. But neither is aware how fraught with danger and peril their love will become.

In this searing portrait of a community on the brink, Sandi Burrill and the Beach of Flames eloquently explores the desperation of teenage love trapped by a forbidding and uncontrollable environment.

Struggling to listen

I was given a copy of this book by my request for free. I’m having a really hard time getting through even the first couple chapters due to the accent of the narrator. I get that this book takes place in the UK so obviously you would have a British narrator but the accent is so distinct that people in the United States would probably have a hard time picking up the dialect. I am also having a really hard time trying to understand the connection between the characters. That might be because I haven’t read the previous books but I’m having a hard time understanding where they’ll fit and who the stories even about for this book.

A Dramatic Conclusion

The final school year brings intrigue, love, lust, angst and clarity to the teenagers as the outside world becomes a greater part of their lives. In another wonderfully crafted and executed novel the author treats us to those tumulus teenage emotions through the eyes of her characters. The dialogue and inner voices are natural and expertly narrated to the listener. There's even a dramatic twist at the end of the tale, enjoy.

boldly chaotic, clearly co-ordinated.

At first I had no idea what on earth to make of this book. I found the scenes disconnected and,, on the surface shallow but that’s actually not the case. i stuck with it and found that it is really verry deep and obviously a lot of thought has gone in to its apparently chaotic construction until finally i think I figured out the author’s intention. it’s deep really and scattered like the emotions of teenagers exploring their identities but it’s even more than that. I haven’t read any of the first three books in the series so i might be utterly wrong in what i’m saying but I find it intriguing and fascinating in an odd sort of way. it’s a long way from what I usually read but not bad for all that. Thought provokint, I think this book needs to be read more than once to really get the full measure of it. the performance leaves a bit to be desired though. Repeated lines and mispronounced words throughout leave one slightly irritated but stick with it despite the naration. I think it’s well worth the time taken to really explore this book.
