And it’s calling out to Lily.

Our February 2023 Teen Book of the Month
For our February Teen Book of the Month we have chosen The Girl Who Broke the Sea. After Lily gets kicked out of school for her destructive behaviour, she agrees to join her mum at Deephaven; an experimental deep-sea mining rig and research station located at the bottom of the ocean. Lily instantly regrets her decision: claustrophobic and isolated, it’s hardly her idea of home. Turns out, Deephaven has problems of its own. The head scientist has disappeared – just as he was on the brink of a shocking discovery. In the darkness of the deep, something is stirring … something dangerous. And it’s calling out to Lily.
This is an edge-of-your-seat deep sea thriller – part disaster movie, part psychological thriller, part alien encounter – that is both a spine-tingling adventure and thoughtful exploration of self-knowledge … and ultimately self-acceptance. With a PhD in physics, MA in creative writing, a background in tech and a hobby of making science projects with his sons, debut author A. Connors is well advised to write this mind-expanding struggle for survival story. Perfect for fans of Frances Hardinge, Brigid Kemmerer and Marissa Meyer.
