Description of this Book

Minnow is different from the other girls in her town and there's plenty to set her apart: the blossom of pale scars which lie beneath Minnow's delicate ears, the fact that she has an affinity with the water which leaves people speechless, and that once - she is sure - in deep, deep water, her body began to glow like a sunken star. When her mum gets into trouble and is taken from their boat in the dead of night, Minnow is alone with one instruction: sail to Reykjavik to find your grandmother, she will keep you safe. Minnow has never sailed on her own before, but the call of the deep is a call she's been waiting to answer her whole young life. Perhaps a girl who is lost on land can be found in the Wild Deep. The stunning middle grade debut from Cerrie Burnell

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Burnell makes her middle-grade debut with a vividly imagined magical adventure starring a 12-year-old girl with an irrestistible pull to the water. * Fiona Noble, The Bookseller * The Girls with the Shark's Teeth glitters with fairytale magic: maps made of moonlight, pirate-hook mothers whose gaze can 'knock eagles from the sky' and fierce young gatekeepers shaking up seas. Wild and wonderful storytelling from one of the loveliest authors in the business. * Abi Elphinstone, Author * A bold adventure in a hugely imaginvative world. The Girl with the Shark's Teeth sings like the sea! * Sophie Anderson, Author * Perfect bathtime reading for wannabe mermaids! Cerrie Burnell's lyrical, dreamy writing is like a love song to the sea in this voyage of adventure and self-discovery. The call of the deep will lure you into a richly-imagined world. * Michelle Harrison, Author *
