Read for the "book set in my home town" bit of the Popsugar challenge. Was pleasantly surprised to find that there was one! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385750544, Hardcover)

Eighteen-year-old Flora is recovering from “nervous exhaustion” in the sanatorium at her boarding school. She is supposed to rest. But the rest brings back her childhood memories of living in Borneo, where she encountered people and events shaped by the tragedies of the Second World War, when the island was occupied by Japanese soldiers and their concentration camps.

Award-winning author Adèle Geras weaves the captivating story of a young woman who, by coming to terms with her memories of the past, is able to move on to a new phase of her life.

Now eighteen years old and living in England, Flora remembers the experiences she had as a nine-year-old in North Borneo, or Sabah, where she endured outsider status and where she uncovered the secret story of an old house.
