Surfacing

(2013)
A novel by

 
Though only in year ten, Maggie Paris is a star on the school swimming team. She also has an uncanny, almost magical ability to draw out people's deepest truths, even when they don't intend to share them. It's reached a point where most of her classmates, all except her best friend, now avoid her, and she's taken to giving herself away every chance she gets to an unavailable - and ungrateful - popular boy from the wrestling team, just to prove she still exists. Even Maggie's parents seem wary of her as the deep secret at the heart of their devastated family slowly unravels and Maggie learns a further truth about the circumstances surrounding her sister's death. A lyrical and deeply moving portrait of grief, blame and forgiveness, and of finding the courage to confront your ghosts - one truth at a time.
