29 ThE OTTOmAn mOTEL cHRIStopHeR cuRRIe What starts as an ‘Are we there yet?’ road trip, soon explodes into a tense, page-turning literary thriller. Eleven-year-old Simon shouldn’t have to be so intimate with loss and grief. He shouldn’t have to feel frustrated and angry that no-one in the small coastal town of Reception can emerge from their own damaged memories to search with energy for his missing parents. The setting and characters are so familiar that watching lives unravel and places become sinister is painful. Is Reception really Deception? A satisfying read, raising as many life-changing questions as answers.
