Review quote

"Outstanding...I raced through it." - Malorie Blackman; "Wonderfully atmospheric and magic oozes from the pages. Perfect summer holiday reading" - Lovereading4kids; "A stunning debut novel that is guaranteed to bewitch, bother and bewilder... Deep Water blends a gentle but compelling modern day romance with an enigmatic storyline that uses the legends of Britain's pre-history as its thrilling backdrop." - Lancashire Evening Post; "Danni's mother disappears, her Dad takes her to Cornwall - and she is battling old evil with new magic. Mslexia prize-winner; excellent." - The Independent; "Taking myth, folklore, witchcraft and ancient beliefs as inspiration, it weaves a contemporary tale about a group of teenagers caught up in a legacy of family secrets... the writing is assured and original" - Never Imitate; 'The story, inspired by Cornish sea-lore, is vibrant and full of eccentric characters' - The Irish Examiner; 'an atmospheric novel, slowly building up tension and a sense of dread, but also a sense of mystery. It's a mythical thriller for youngsters, in the tradition of Alan Garner (and on a par with his best work)' - Bastian Balthasar Books
