Dark Water

Written by Cindy Jefferies

Illustrated by Dave Shephard

Part of the Wired Up Series

Dark Water Synopsis

Sarah is a superb synchronised swimmer with a good chance of getting on the Olympic team. However, she's shy, and never talks about her swimming at school for fear of mockery. Her fledgeling relationship with Tom is almost destroyed when she thinks he's exposed her to the ridicule of the class, who have no idea how demanding synchronised swimming is. But when a classmate finds himself in danger, only Sarah will be able to help... Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Up encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, or those with English as an additional language, aged 11+, at a manageable length (80 pages) and reading level (9+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
