Waves

(2007)
A novel by

 

"... a remarkable novel... both sensuous and sinister."
Philip Pullman


For fourteen year old Hal Ditton, summer has always meant a glorious six weeks of sun, sand and surf at his family's favourite spot in Cornwall. This year, though, the summer is slipping away fast. Trapped in Oxford with his 'half-dead' sister, Charley, lying in a coma, Hal dreams of escaping to the coast. But when his troubled family makes the difficult decision to leave Charley in the ward and head for Cornwall without her, Hal finds it harder than anyone to shake off his big sister's presence. Even as he eases himself into the lazy stay, Hal's mind is crowded with thoughts of Charley, and the events that led to her terrible injury... thoughts that are not entirely his own.

What is the power that lets Hal share the memories of his shattered sister? And will their strange encounter lead him to the dark truth about Charley's 'accident'? Veined with mystery and tinged with supernature, WAVES is a coming-of-age story about first love and first loss. About a family drowning in their woes and the remarkable boy fighting against the tide to save them.
