Deep Water

Publisher: Usborne

Danni is a modern girl - falling in love and having a laugh with her mates - but she's also living with something deep and mysterious.

One day, salt water starts pouring from Danni’s palms; her mum goes missing; and she discovers she’s got a grandmother living in Cornwall she had no idea existed.

Investigating her mother’s disappearance, she finds that her grandmother has a great deal to teach her about their shared magical heritage, and the tensions that are simmering under the surface in her small Cornish village.

Hugely evocative of the romantic and wild Cornish landscape, this modern retelling of the selkie myth is a magical and beautiful story about coming of age, transformation and belonging - to your family, to your ancestors, to yourself and to nature.
