More than I ever wanted to know about moths, but Ginny Stone told her story well.

Ecriture intéressante. Suspense psychologique. Intéressant d'entrer dans la tête du narrateur, un peu autistique je crois; peu consciente de son entourage, très attachée à sa soeur et pourtant aucune émotion lorsqu'elle pose un geste ultime. Personnage très intéressant. Par contre, les descriptions scientifiques sont un peu longues.
J'aurais aimé discuté ce livre dans mon club de lecture
