Annie
needs to lose her virginity, so she's waiting in a car park for Paul.

Paul needs drugs for the party, but he's got to keep an eye on his sister, Josie.

Josie needs a father figure. Or that's how it seems to her driving instructor, Neil.

Eva needs to get away from the island. She could do without bumping into the school bully, Kat.

Claire needs to drink herself into the mood for the hen do. But she's been betrayed by her childhood friend, Becky. And she can't stop thinking about what's happened to her sister, Kat ...

Set on the island of Guernsey over a period of twenty years, these closely linked stories reveal the desires, friendships, betrayals, regrets and heartaches of twelve intertwined people. Against a backdrop of picturesque cliffs and beaches, grimy clubs and pubs and chip shops, their stumbling attempts to connect with each other are depicted with wrenching pathos, wry humour and moving empathy.
