You spend your whole time on an island looking out to sea. Perhaps what you are facing is yourself...

Sixteen-year-old Stephanie West has been dragged from Sydney to remote Maatsuyker Island off the coast of Tasmania by her parents, hoping to recapture a childhood idyll and come to terms with their grief over the death of Steph's twin brother.

Cut off from friends and the comforts of home, exiled to a lonely fortress and a lighthouse that bears the brunt of savage storms, the months ahead look to be filled with ghosts of the past. Steph's saviour is Tom Forrest, a 19-year-old deckhand aboard a crayfishing boat. When the weather allows, Tom visits the island, and he and Steph soon form an attraction. But Tom must conceal at all costs the illegal fishing he takes part in, orchestrated by his tyrannical brother. And he dare not dwell on his fear of the sea or his deep-worn premonition that the ocean will one day take him.

Wildlight is an exquisite, vividly detailed exploration of the wayward journey of adolescence, and how the intense experience of a place can change the course of even the most well-planned life.

    I was bored with long, long descriptions of storms, nature, and the island itself. The writing was a bit laborious for my taste, not very elegant. And then the characters - Stephanie was the best developed one, but even her character left me wanting to know more; mother, father, brother, Tom, Frank, their mother - all very flat... I kept thinking throughout the book "not enough, just not enough"... the ending also left me frustrated as I was hoping to at least get some resolution... for me this was a promising story, however it left me feeling cold...and a bit cheated
