A Boy Called Ocean

Cornwall Life - - BOOKS -

By Chris Hig­gins (Hod­der Chil­dren’s £6.99)

Kai has al­ways been friends with Jen but now his feel­ings for her are no longer just about friend­ship. Fu­ri­ous and up­set, be­liev­ing there is no chance she could ever fancy him, he steals a surf­board and heads out to catch some waves. No one knows where he is though so when things go badly wrong, will any­one know to search from him at sea? Will he ever be able to tell Jen how he feels about her? In­spired by a real-life story, award-win­ning Cor­nish au­thor Chris Hig­gins gath­ered ex­pert ad­vice from the Pen­lee Lifeboat team, surf­ing and life­sav­ing ex­perts en­sur­ing all the de­tails about search and res­cue at sea were spot on. It’s a pacey, heartwrench­ing read that will keep teens gripped to the very end.
