The Lovereading4Kids comment
There’s thrilling drama at the heart of this powerful story of the dangerous tug of war between humans and mer-people. When Morveren finds Malin, an injured mer-boy, washed up on the beach of the island she lives on, she is determined to rescue him and return him to his people. But not even her twin sister Jeena is willing to help! Morveren is pulled ever more deeply into the world of Mer and their beliefs as she protects Malin from the worst of human behaviour. Helen Dunmore paints a vivid picture of a place that forms a frontier between two worlds and between past and present.
The Ingo Chronicles: Stormswept by Helen Dunmore
An atmospheric and beautifully written adventure from the award-winning author of the Ingo series.
Morveren lives with her parents and twin sister Jenna on an island off the coast of Cornwall. As Morveren and Jenna's relationship shifts and changes, like driftwood on the tide, Morveren finds a beautiful teenage boy in a rock pool after a storm. Going to his rescue, she is shocked to see that he is not human but a Mer boy. With Jenna refusing to face the truth, Morveren finds herself alone at the worst possible time. Because when the worlds of Air and Mer meet, the consequences can be terrible!
