Product Description

Hannah and Joey have been best friends forever, making beautiful things from the shells and driftwood on the beach. But now it’s not just the two of them anymore: now there’s a newcomer, Paul. He’s Joey’s new foster brother, who has been rescued like a piece of driftwood. Everyone thinks he’s finally found safety. At first, things are great. Hannah’s brother makes friends with Paul and the four hang out together. But then things start to go wrong. Paul is being bullied – by Hannah’s brother. Subtly at first… until it gets dangerous. Now Paul needs rescuing again. But can you rescue a friendship when it’s drowning? Can you betray your flesh and blood to save a stranger’s life? As Paul floats further and further away from her, Hannah faces the toughest choice of her life.

    Amazing I absolutely loved it,at first I wasn’t sure if I liked it but after about Page 20 I regretted not reading it before. This book was great but sad,we’ll not sad just… emotional when Kit turns on Paul I feel as if I could punch Kit, I thought that he had just lost a really cool, unique ,funny, caring soon to be friend!

    This is a good book about first love, friendship and bullying. I really enjoyed reading it. It is about Hannah and how she copes when her brother starts dating her best friend. Suddenly she finds herself alone at lunch and she has no one to talk to. She ends up friends with Paul a foster kid who is currently living with Joey Hannah’s best friend’s family. Great read for ages 12+
