In a tiny flat in West London, sixteen-year-old Marina lives with her emotionally delicate mother, Laura, and three ancient Hungarian relatives. Imprisoned by her family's crushing expectations and their fierce un-English pride, by their strange traditions and stranger foods, Marina knows she must escape - but the place she runs to makes her feel even more of an outsider. At Combe Abbey, a traditional English boarding school for which her family have sacrificed everything, she realises she has made a terrible mistake.
