What a gorgeous story! The setting felt inventive, while leaning into traditional folktales. The family dynamic was complex and nuanced, but totally sympathetically done. I was gripped by the story and characters and raced through the final chapters. A brilliant book for young readers.

Set in a quiet English seaside town, this warm fantasy rises like a wave, with grief, family, and colonialism as backdrops to dangerous bargains with magic. Starring a brave young woman trying to both discover the truth and protect her younger brother, this delightful contemporary take on fairy legends also poses questions of how to recognize – and atone for – a troubled past.
