For mature teens, the story of Richard and Clio and their summer together draws on the theme of first love. Christopher Cazenove's narration engages as the account of Richard and Clio's time together moves between the past and the present. The story features descriptions of paintings from that summer by Clio's famous father. One storytelling device juxtaposes the captions on the paintings with startling scenes from Clio's unconventional family life, which Richard finds captivating. Casenove's nuanced performance illuminates the deception that Richard experiences and its effect on him. The secret of what happened that summer is finally revealed at the end of the story.
