I’m excited to share that the book launch for Sea Change will be held 3rd July 6:30pm, at the fabulous Blackwell’s bookshop on South Bridge, Edinburgh. Do register if you’d like to come along, and bring all your questions. (I’ll try my best at the event to avoid spoilers!)
Sea Change with Sylvia Hehir
Blackwell’s is pleased to be hosting the launch of Sylvia Hehir‘s Sea Change, an edgy YA thriller that isn’t afraid of tackling tough issues.
About the Book
Struggling to look after his grieving mother, sixteen-year-old Alex wants nothing more than to leave school. All right, he made some poor decisions during the summer holiday, not least of which was getting involved with Chuck, a stranger hiding out in this remote part of the Scottish Highlands. Chuck was exciting, challenging Alex to take ever-increasing risks. But Chuck wasn’t supposed to turn up dead next to Alex’s fishing boat. With the bills mounting, Alex has to accept that he is struggling to cope. But things get even worse when his best friend goes missing.
