About this book
For fifteen-year-old Hal Ditton and his family, summer has always meant six glorious weeks by the sea. But this year is different - Charley, Hal's sister, is lying in a coma. When the troubled family makes the difficult decision to return to their holiday home without her, Hal finds it harder than anyone to shake off his elder sister's presence.
Veined with thrilling mystery and tinged with the super-sensory, this is a compelling coming-of-age story about first love and tragic loss. With shades of "The Lovely Bones", it's told through the voices of 15 year old Hal Ditton and Charley, his elder sister, communicating from her coma following an accident. Dogar is a counsellor for young people and a former pupil of Philip Pullman. There will be national interviews, review coverage and press advertising. Ages: 13+.
