The Lovereading4Kids comment
The touching and romantic story of a bright heroine movingly and carefully navigating the complexities of falling in love is compelling reading. When Freya’s train home from her wonderful summer holiday is stopped by a fatality on the line she determines to find out what exactly happened. Following it up leads her to meet Gabes and, through him, his whole delightful family who epitomise everything her family is not. It all seems perfect until Gabes' older brother Theo begins to take an interest in Freya. Theo is older and haunted by the past but Freya is drawn to him especially when Gabes appears indifferent. How Freya handles the choices she must make is cleverly and convincingly explored.
Bringing the Summer by Julia Green
A dreamy new novel from a popular teen author. The perfect coming of age story for any young girl just tipping into teenhood.
It's the lazy end of summer and Freya is about to start her A levels. Her brother Joe died a year ago, but she is slowly coming to terms with his death. She is beginning to feel ready for something new - a change. And then a railway accident brings her by chance into contact with the gorgeous Gabes.
'Julia Green is a writer to watch' - David Almond
Praise for Breathing Underwater:
'Excellent story ... from an author who, notably, has written unpatronisingly and sensitively about teenagers' feelings' - The Bookseller
'Never has that sun-soaked, salt-crusted sense of teenage summer well-being been better described' - The Guardian
'The book's chief strength is its convincing depiction of Emily herself, and the inner turmoil which matches that of her world ... Teenage girls will enjoy the book because of Emily, in whose character and life they will find much that is both familiar and eye-opening' - School Librarian
