M.O. Walsh writes concisely, but still with eloquence and imagery in My Sunshine Away. This mystery stems from a seemingly safe and generous neighborhood with kind people - but there are unknown things going on behind everyone's walls and fences. The main character is well-developed from an obsessive young boy to an unruly teenager; all his young life he worries over a girl, Lindy, who, as a teenager, was attacked in the neighborhood he and Lindy lived in. After, this, no lives were the same again.
