This Northern Sky

Written by Julia Green

This Northern Sky Synopsis

Kate's parents are taking her on holiday with them to a cottage on a remote island in the Hebrides. Kate can't imagine anything more boring. But underneath her sulkiness, Kate is scared. Her parents have been fighting and she knows that for her parents this holiday is make or break. Once at the cottage, Kate escapes - outside, anywhere. And there she meets the warmth of the islanders, who are prepared to accept her and to listen to her. And possibly fall in love with her . . .

This Northern Sky Press Reviews

Praise for Breathing Underwater: Excellent story . . . from an author who, notably, has written unpatronisingly and sensitively about teenagers' feelings * Bookseller * Never has that sun-soaked, salt-crusted sense of teenage summer well-being been better described * Guardian * Julia Green is a writer to watch * David Almond * The book's chief strength is its convincing depiction of Emily herself, and the inner turmoil which matches that of her world . . . Teenage girls will enjoy the book because of Emily, in whose character and life they will find much that is both familiar and eye-opening * School Librarian *
