Canal Boat - - News -

Writ­ten with chil­dren and young adults in mind, and set in the present day, un­like much wa­ter­ways fic­tion, this self-pub­lished book by an au­thor who has him­self lived afloat tells the story of an ex­cep­tional fort­night in the life of ‘con­tin­u­ous cruis­ers’ 13-year-old Toby and his fam­ily. We follow Toby and his sis­ter Polly through the dif­fi­cul­ties of get­ting to school and meet­ing friends from re­mote moor­ings. When an un­for­tu­nate ac­ci­dent puts their fa­ther Tim off work for a spell, they de­cide to take a hol­i­day away from their usual area and travel down the cut, lead­ing to meet­ings with new peo­ple and new ex­pe­ri­ences. Ul­ti­mately de­ci­sions are made that will af­fect the fu­ture of the fam­ily.
