Aunt Josefina's fat white legs under the water; a child standing on a grown-up's shoulders and plunging into the waves; eating lunch on the beach, the food gritty with sand; a late afternoon swim in the delicious water; getting changed behind the rocks, shivering in the suddenly cold wind; then walking home singing and picking sun-warm blackberries...
Against the backdrop of a seaside holiday, the book sings the joys of summer freedoms and explores that transitional moment when childhood becomes adolescence.
