About Book

Rose feels as if she's been drifting along in a strange, numb dream ever since her mother's death.

Suddenly, however, her life is rocked by changes - for good and bad. First she hears that Tyger Pool, her place of refuge, with all its memories of Mum and of happy days, is to be drained to make way for houses. That's bad. Then she befriends the warm and eccentric Rocket family who provide a new place of refuge in their home in the tumbledown Old Guildhall. That's pretty good. But then mysterious Aunt Cat moves in as a lodger. And that's when things start to get really bad ...

'A riveting read - "edge of your seat" stuff. Written with vast imaginative flair and sensitivity.' She Magazine

'A brilliant novel that leaves its readers emotionally drained.' Daily Telegraph

'Simmering passion which makes all things possible ... memorable.' Times Educational Supplement
