Yoli is conflicted. Her sister Elf has battled depression for her whole adult life, and is in a psychiatric ward under permanent observation after attempting suicide - again. She has always looked up to her as her talented and beautiful older sister. She loves her with a fierce passion and wants to believe in the possibility of a future together, one in which Elf gets better. But it's looking unlikely and Yoli has to decide if the person you love is tired of living, is it kinder just to let them go?

okay, so this is a novel about suicide, which may sound like heavy going but it isn't. It's an interesting, thoughtful, humane book.
