Fur by Meg Harper

Synopsis Grace has always loved the sea, and feels drawn to it more and more as she passes her 14th birthday. Yet there are many distractions back on dry land - her strange vivid dreams, her demanding swimming coach, the attentions of the gorgeous Nik Bentley...And then there are the worries about the unique downy skin that she constantly tries to hide - what will people say if they realise she has fur growing all over her body? Ultimately it is the sea that holds the key to Grace's startling personal mystery.
