TAPE is an outstanding debut. Told with crackling prose, shimmering with humour and deeply moving, it will haunt anyone who reads it+óe-ª
Record a voice and it lasts forever+óe-ª
In 1993, Ryan records a diary on an old tape. He talks about his mother+óe(tm)s death, about his dreams, about his love for a new girl at school who doesn+óe(tm)t even know he exists.
In 2013, Ameliah moves in with her grandmother after her parents die. There, she finds a tape in the spare room. A tape with a boy+óe(tm)s voice on it +óe"e; a voice she can+óe(tm)t quite hear, but which seems to be speaking to her.
Ryan and Ameliah are connected by more than just a tape.
This is their story.
