Deeper Than Blue

Author: Jill Hucklesby Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/05/2007

Amy is a thirteen-year-old champion swimmer. When she and her best friend Sophie meet with an accident one day, Amy's life changes dramatically. Amy's story of how she comes to terms with Sophie's death and with the consequences of her accident is told with sensitivity and humour. In hospital, Amy makes friends with quirky Harry, and begins to feel more positive. Her relationship with her parents is changing too, and the family's move from Nottingham to Brighton heralds a new start. Amy starts swimming again and triumphs in a competition - she has come full circle, and we have cried and laughed with her all the way.
